DIY with LMP: Paper Fish Lanterns

IMG_9002

LMP loves nothing more than a summer bash. Yesterday Seri and Michelle had the pleasure of throwing an Under the Sea Party at Kravis Children’s Hospital at Mount Sinai. So to contribute, I made some fish lanterns for the decorations! They are SO easy and a perfect addition for your next nautical celebration.

Step 1: cut your papers for little eyeballs and fish fins.

Step 3: Glue two pieces of fins together, leaving the bottom .5" unglued to attach to the top of the lantern.

Our fish lanterns brought smiles to all the children who participated in the Under the Sea themed celebration as did the treasure chest crafts that were supplied by Imagination Lane.

It's always nice when a little bit of effort goes a long way. We hope to be back at Kravis Children's Hospital at Mount Sinai bringing cheer to the kids again soon.
