We made this cute little lantern the other day in anticipation of our Waldorf Playstands which will be arriving soon.
The little ones are very excited and can’t wait to turn our livingroom into a pretend campside for their Playstand Sleepover.
The lantern uses a battery operated tealight so it’s perfectly safe.
Kid’s Camping Lantern
You will need:
A plastic jar with lid & handle (While we usually avoid plastic it seemed safest to use for this project.)
Tissue paper in orange,yellow and red
A battery operated tealight
Cut out flame shapes from the tissue paper.
Mix 1 part glue with 2 parts water, dip your flames into the mix and glue them to the outside of the jar.
We started with red, glued orange over it and yellow on top. We found it easiest to put the glue mixture onto a shallow plate.
Let it dry , put in your electric tealight and enjoy!
