Christmas Around the World

My 3rd grader's class is doing a project today, Christmas Around the World. He chose China. Each student had to select a country then bring something in to share that is traditional for that country. In China, children make paper lanterns, rings, and such to hang around their homes. We decided to make paper lanterns using a great pattern we found online. We had to make 25 of them but it was quick using my old rotary blade. The best part is, we had fun making them together and I'm sure the other students will be just as excited.

How nice! It doesn't break the bank either. The classroom must have looked wonderful!
