I made some beautiful ball lanterns and many have requested for me to share the steps here.

Red Packet Ball Lantern

Gold Packet Ball Lantern

I found it very difficult to explain it with pictures but I found this video instead.Β  Let’s watch this video and I’m sure you’ll be able to make your very own beautiful ball lantern using red packets πŸ˜€

A friend of mine requested me to make it round, like a ball without those spikes. What you need to do is just follow the steps shown in the video, and after you are done, just fold the spikes and staple them.

Staple as shown above. Your lantern will turn out lovely πŸ˜€

Today we are going to make a different kind of art. An art that requires the use of candle and flame. This requires close supervision of an adult. NEVER let your kid do this unsupervised.

Candle Polka Dots

First, I demo to my son how I lit a candle and let the wax drip on the art block.

Once I’m confident that he understands, I let him try.

He then paint the art block with various colours

Light a candle and let the wax drip on the colours.

Use a sponge and paint the whole art block with a darker color. We use black πŸ™‚

Once the paint dries, use a coin to scrape off the candles and you’ll get beautiful dots of colours!

A beautiful work of art πŸ˜€

Coming up – See how we use the same technique to create a Christmas themed art πŸ™‚
