To celebrate Matariki we have created lanterns and decorated the three sides with symbols that represent three of the 9 stars in the cluster.
By looking at the pictures below, can you guess the stars that are depicted by the symbols on the lantern?
How to make a lantern
1.Use 3 sewers to make a triangle
2.Then grab 3 small planks and make a pyramid and use the triangle as the base.
3.Once your pyramid is done make a outside layer out of baking paper and glue them on.
4.Use tissue paper to make designs(optional)or you can cut out some shapes in the baking paper then your lantern is done.
