creative kids – milk carton lantern

As we call ‘lights out’ on another day for our little darlings, I just had to share this terribly fabulous lantern idea.

blog carton lantern

Simply cut out shapes of windows and doors (little ones may need some assistance with this) then place your carton over the top of a flameless tealight candle (available from the Hot Dollar shop).

If you want to add more dimension to this project kids can decoupage or paint the outside of their building too.  Imagine how great these would look all lined up for an outside dinner?  LOVE. x
