It's not too late to make these fabulous Halloween Lanterns. Just skip the oiling step and you will still have really cute lanterns to display on your porch, deck or even have your child carry when trick or treating. If your child is carrying the lantern, make sure to use battery operated candles or tea lights.
Next to an Easter bunny, the other most recognizable symbol of the holiday is an Easter chick. Both the bunny and the chick symbolize new life and the Spring season. These Easter chicks are so easy to make and certainly much easier to care for than a real one :)

This Christmas paper craft was inspired by the Origami Instructions site. I love these stars because they are so pretty and easy to make. Just cut 5 squares of paper, fold, punch a hole and hang.
