It's that time of the year again. All over Germany kids are making lanterns and (re-)learn the songs of the season. Mine are no exception.

This year's lantern form of choice involves balloons, colored transparent paper and paste, lots of paste. This here comes close, but my kids use smaller snippets of paper, several different colors and probably more paste. I'm not sure what they enjoy more - the sticky fingers or the part of the build process that involves a needle and ends with a bang.

We are booked for at least three if not five lantern parades over the next few weeks, so cold feet and wet noses are to be expected.
