This short film is in partnership with our friends at www.woodlands.co.uk The Winter Solstice is fast approaching when we experience the longest night of the year before the light again begins to flow back northward. In this short film we guide you through how to make and decorate a paper lantern for the coming festivities. Whilst using this resource to inspire learning, know you are helping you and your family's wellbeing by:
1)- Get active - Winter Solstice is on December 21st and a lovely tie to take your lantern for a walk to welcome in the new light. 2) Keep Learning -making 3D sculptures is great fun but often requires lots of skills- this activity is a great way to keep learning through the creative process. 3) Be Mindful- We headed into the woods for this activity and took the chance to see, sense and feel the changes of the woodland during the winter. Being mindful of these changes is a great way to boost wellbeing. 4) Practice Kindness - making things with family and children usually requires patience and kindness - be kind enough to give yourselves plenty of time to do them in. 5) Think Community - Share your fabulous outcomes with your community, post them online to inspire others in future, and remember to keep them for next year.
