This Saturday October 14, Stratford is having its very first lantern parade. We as a class decided we should made our own lanterns so families could go.
We needed just a few more bottles and luckily we noticed it was recycle day in our Avon neighbourhood. We headed out for a community walk and gathered plastic bottles.
We returned with lots of bottles! First we had to wash and let them dry before we could use them. Next step was to paint glue all over our bottles and put beautiful tissue paper to cover all the spots.
Once the glue and paper was on we had to let it dry. That was hard to sit back and not touch! Finally every lantern was dry. We practiced carrying around our lanterns and showing other people at Avon school.
The lanterns are finally ready to take home. Each lantern has a small battery powered candle inside. We encourage families to go this weekend and post to our blog photos or stories. It will be a fun event!
