BIrthday Celebration: Another rocking idea. Remember the old fashion art project - paste, yarn and a balloon? Fast forward to Reggio inspired and you have birthday lanterns. The lanterns hang undecorated until the child's birthday (child's photo is attached to plain lantern). In the second photo you can see the ribbons woven in for the celebration. The teacher told me that there are little battery operated flames in the lanterns. On the child's birthday - their plain lantern is lit.
