DIY With DPPL: Mason Jar Lanterns

Hey, Kiddos! It's time for a new edition of DIY with DPPL!

This time, you'll learn how to make your very own mason jar lanterns.


The Lantern Festival, called Yuan Xiao Jie in Mandarin Chinese, falls at the end of the Chinese New Year. It takes place on the first full moon of the new year and celebrates the end of winter and the beginning of spring. Create your very own lanterns to celebrate the the Lantern Festival and use them to let in light into your world.

Starting on Saturday, March 2nd, stop by the Youth Services desk on the second floor of DPPL to pick up a kit (while supplies last!), and then use the materials to do the project we show you step-by-step in the video.
