    We also made a fan

    I used finger paints for both the lantern and the fan I found it easier with the children only being 2 and 3 years

    They're lovely Angel, good idea using the finger paints with the little ones. We're starting on Chinese New Year next week too, keeping it nice and simple as mine are only toddlers.

    After seeing this we made them using felt tip stamper pens and the results were really good.
