DIY Ramadan lantern craft for kids (step-by-step tutorial)

Step 1: Make the body of the Ramadan lantern

Gather all the supplies.

We need to cut a rectangle out from the construction paper. For that, mark 12 cm on the width of the paper.

Draw a straight line from the top of the paper to the bottom.

Cut the rectangle out. So, the length of this Ramadan lantern is 12cm and the width is the full length of the paper.

Step 2: Create patterns on the lantern

Draw some repeating shapes of your choice on the lantern.

Here, we drew the traditional Islamic geometric pattern of crescent moons and stars.

Now, cut the shapes out.

Step 3: Make the borders

Now, take another construction paper of a different color.

Cut it to the same width as the first rectangular sheet, ie, 12 cm. The length you can adjust to your preferences.

Draw a wave pattern on the upper portion of both the rectangular papers.

Cut along the outline of the wave to have the borders.

Now, stick the two borders to the top and bottom ends of the lantern’s body.

Step 4: Roll the paper to form the lantern

Now, roll the paper to join the ends together to form the lantern. Use glue to fasten the ends.

You can use tealight candles or flameless LED candles to light inside the Ramadan lantern.

The picture above shows the final look.
