An Easy Ramadan Decoration: Paper Lanterns

Sherrie W

One Ramadan decoration that has been a hit for us is the Ramadan paper lantern.  It's a great, easy activity for the kids because it involves colorful construction paper and cutting!

What You'll Need:

  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Stapler or glue
  • Markers, stickers, craft items to decorate (optional)

What You Do:

I found a great tutorial over at Sophie World, so rather than replicating it, I'll give you the link:

Here are a few of our lanterns in process:

My 7 year old went all out with decorating one of them which we used as the center lantern when we hung them up:

Our finished hanging lanterns:

Instead of making handles as the tutorial did, we just punched holes in two opposite sides of the top of each lantern and ran some yarn through them.

We also didn't make double lanterns (a lantern inside of a lantern) as the tutorial showed. We don't have a long attention span for crafts around here, so just a single lantern per lantern was enough for us.
