Make an individual lantern to take home after the parade, or get together with a group to create a giant lantern as a group. Finish in a day or come back each week.

Suitable for age 5-95. Not compulsory to come with a child!! This is a messy gluey activity, so please wear suitable clothing.

Lanterns will be stored at The Bureau until the parade, so no need to transport a wet lantern home . Children must be accompanied by an adult.
