A Peace Pals Peace Project
The Friendship Lantern was inspired by the International Peace Lantern Exchange
Project which encourages children to create, exchange and float lanterns to promote
world peace. This version, somewhat different, can be made just to catch the beauty
of light and as an expression of peace. You can also mail one to your Peace Pal.
You will need:
or paper, art tissue paper, scissors and glue.

the 2 long sides over towards the middle.
out shapes along the folded edges, creating openings in the paper.
flat. Glue pieces of art tissue paper to cover the openings. Overlapping these
will create new colors when the light shines through.
Turn over and decorate the lantern
with your own images and thoughts of peace and friendship. You might include the
message: MAY PEACE PREVAIL ON EARTH.
If you want to send the lantern to
your Peace Pal, it will be easier to mail flat, before assembling.
To assemble, just glue short
sides together, making a circular shape. For a handle, glue two ends of a strip
of paper to the inside, at the top.
Hang in a window or near a light to see the beautiful colors of your Friendship
