• Make a series of cuts (about a dozen or more) along the fold line.
• Don’t cut all the way to the edge of the paper.
• Unfold the paper.
• Glue or staple the short edges of the paper together.
• Cut a strip of paper 6 inches long and ½ inch wide.
• Glue or staple this strip of paper across one end of the lantern – this will be the handle of the lantern

• Fold the cardboard in half.
• Glue the bottle tops to the inside of the cardboard; one on each side.
• When the glue has dried the castanets will click when pressed together sharply. Practice using the castanets with the girls.
