Laterne, Laterne, Sonne, Mond und Sterne... so goes the song that my little girl learned last year at the Kindergarten during the Laternenfest.
I am so excited for my little girl's Laternenfest this year. She really had fun at last year's Laternenfest and I am not surprised why.. It's scheduled on the 8th of November, Tuesday at 5:30 in the evening. I know my little girl is excited too and I know why... because it means creating our very own lanterns. There are so many craft ideas available online and I can't wait to create a lantern or two for my little girl. I am even tempted to order some books so that it will be easier for me and my little girl to choose.
There are some really good books that I found on the Internet and I am very much tempted to buy them. Although they are in German, I think I can manage to follow the instructions. But then again, there are also free instructions and patterns available on the Internet so I might just as well make use of them. I can even use my own creativity to create something original for my little girl. Last year, I went to the Kindergarten to make our very first lantern there. It was an Indian girl that we created and it was fun making crafts with my little girl although I did most of the work.
This year, I am planning to do it here at home. All I need to do is buy the materials from a craft shop.
I don't know what kind of lantern we will be creating this year but the following are my options:
A Halloween Witch:
Or this cute monster:
Which do you think will my little girl like? I know it will be so much fun creating whatever lantern she decides we will make. I am looking forward to it. But first, I am off to the craft shop to check some materials out! Will post some photos when me and my little girl are finished making the lantern. It should be fun!
