Paper Lantern for the Chinese New Year

Kiboomu has details on how to create a paper lantern for the Chinese new year.  It's tradition that the celebrations begin with a lantern festival.  Each color means something different.  

Red: Good fortune 
Pink: Romance 
Peach: Opportunities 
Orange: Money 
Yellow: Success 
White: Health 
Green: Growth 
Blue: Hope 
Purple: Idealism

Everyone chooses the color that shows their wishes and writes down a written message on the lantern itself.

Good for ages 6 and up.
