On 25 January it is Chinese New Year so we decided to make Chinese Lanterns. With it also being the year of the Rat we decided to add the symbol of the rat to our Lanterns for added effect. Linda enjoyed herself so much she made three and decided she wanted to hang her Lantern on her bedroom door so that she could see it all the time. Cilla and Janet were intrigued by how the paper sheet using origami turned into something so pretty and got to work decorating the lanterns. John also joined in and the results were evident for everyone to see. We all had a sing-song while we created our lanterns. It was a very happy, chatty and enjoyable session for us all. Linda’s daughter was delighted to see her mum so happy, talkative and interacting with everyone – it was a joy to see.
