Lanterns are a nice decorative element for birthdays or children's parties and, most importantly, the child can make them very easily and thus contribute something made by himself.
In Guiainfantil.com we teach you to perform different colored paper lanterns. It is a very entertaining origami craft that enhances the development of the child's fine motor skills.
- Colored paper
- Pair of scissors
1. Take a folio-size colored paper and cut a strip of about two centimeters. Fold the rest of the paper and with the ruler make a horizontal line and under it vertical lines, as in the image.
2. Cut with the scissors along the vertical lines, following the guide you made previously in step 1.
3. Open the sheet and glue it at both ends.
4. Use the excess strip to make the handle of the lantern.
