Festival of Lights Begins

Just taking a breather....this year is so busy!  Trying to keep afloat and blogging about it is difficult.  In the past three weeks, I have gained 2 students, 2 students moved, and got another new one Tuesday.  I want a "No Vacancy" sign put on our reader board.

Anyway today we started preparations for our Festival of Light.  During the beginning of the week, we read and researched other countries who have light festivals.  We will be working on making posters to present them next week.  We also finished our first lanterns today.  The hanging lanterns are the easiest to do without parent help.  The other ones are more tricky.  Start with a balloon.....students thought blowing up a balloon as morning work was awesome! 

Next cover your balloon with tissue paper dipped in liquid starch.

 Hang them up and let them dry....
Next week, I will pop the balloons and attach a wire hanger.  Then they will be ready for the tea lights.
Happy Friday!

  1. The No Vacancy sign sounds like a great plan. I hope things settle down from here on out for you.
