Red Lantern Family Craft Activity


Construct your own red lantern in celebration of the Autumn Moon Festival. Paper lanterns are used in Chinese culture during festivals and times of celebration. The bright red color of these lanterns is especially important in Chinese culture, representing luck and prosperity. This family craft activity will teach you how to create this keepsake that you can carry through the garden during your visit and take home with you to use as decoration. 

All needed materials are provided. This activity is included free with garden membership or admission; no registration required.
