Year of the Rat - Paper Lantern Template

Free | 1 page (PDF)|Grades: F - Reception

A craft activity to help celebrate Chinese New Year!

Use this teaching resource when exploring Chinese New Year or as a fun craft activity for your primary school students.

There is a colour version and a black and white option for students who would like to add their own colours and designs.

How to construct the lantern:

  1. Colour the lantern and handle if desired.
  2. Cut-out the lantern along the solid lines.
  3. Fold the lantern in half along the horizontal (longer) axis.
  4. Cut along the dotted lines, making sure you stop at the end of each line. Do not cut all the way through!
  5. Unfold your paper. With the coloured section on the outside, curl the lantern around and glue the ends together to create a circular lantern.
  6. Cut-out the paper strip on the lantern template. Use a stapler to attach this paper handle to the lantern.
