I am so excited for our Lantern Parade this year! It will be our second year parading the 1st – 4th-graders into the four pre-k/kindergarten classrooms. This year, the elementary school students made the most beautiful lanterns out of clay!
They started with a slab of clay. They rolled it out and cut a base. Then they drew designs of moons and suns and cut out stars.
Then we helped them roll the slab and attach it to the base:
They were fired in the kiln. Then the children painted them with glaze, and they were fired a second time. Meanwhile, the children strung beads onto wire, which we then attached to make handles. I’m so amazed by how beautifully they turned out!
Aren’t they spectacular?! They are on display at school until our parade on November 12th!
