I'm sure you've seen these paper lanterns all over the place. You can find them up at Target, Ikea, or just about any home store. They're adorable, inexpensive (especially when on sale), and very cheerful. You can get single large ones, small ones, square ones, circular ones. This weekend I picked up a string of white lanterns with a goal in mind: a family art project.
Within a few minutes, I had everyone in the family: Ben, Lily, Zosia, even my mom, painting their own little lantern with some watercolor paints. I love them! Each one is so different, just like the people in our family. And the truth is, with watercolor paints, you really can't go wrong.
What sorts of family art projects have you been embarking upon? Please share, I love new ideas!
