Paper Lantern Chain {Printable}

Ramadan lantern chain

I created this paper Ramadan lantern chain printable for my daughters to have a little fun decorating our mantle space and window sills for Eid.

These adorable little lanterns can be printed on colored paper or plain and then decorated with markers or not. My daughters were only limited in their imagination.

I let them have the file, gave them access to the paper printer and let them get to work decorating our home.

I have been in the kitchen busy baking a few different types of Eid treats to get ready for Eid AlFitar next week. This will help give them something to do until it was time to decorate the treats.

Print out the Ramadan lantern and cut out the rectangle at the bottom. Fold it on the grey lines.

Cut out the lantern shape, making sure to leave a connection at the bottom and middle of the lantern. To help my daughters hold the folded piece of paper, I gave them paperclips to use.

Now your lantern chain is ready to be opened and decorated. Print and cut out more, then attach them to each other with tape. See if you can create a whole chain around your room!
