How you make the Nativity Lantern
J and T set about colouring in the Nativity Window Decorations – the material is like tracing paper and when held up to glass produces a wonderful stained glass look when sunlight shines through it.
Once they had coloured in the decorations I took over (J is 3 and T is 21 months) with the craft knife and card stock and used 2 pieces. I folded the card in half and then drew around the window decoration.
Once I had drawn the window around I cut out inside but around 1/2cm inside of the line that I had drawn. I then folded a small piece at either side of the paper and stuck the 2 pieces of card together to form a cube with top and bottom missing.
With a electric tea light inside the light shines through the windows and is safe for the kids.
