Recycled Lanterns
If your group can collect some empty clear jars we can decorate them with tissue and silhouette shapes and turn them into jam jar lanterns. These have been popular very so far as the kids get one each and there is plenty of scope for unique creativity with decoration. Plastic jars are safer (eg. nutella), plastic cups are also work fine or plastic bottles if we cut the tops off.

Willow Lanterns
these are the larger lanterns made from willow withy shapes. They are bit more complex and time consuming so recommended for 7 years plus. They need somewhere to dry overnight.

Magic Lanterns
We can learn how to do make simple projections if you have a dark space.
