Mooncake and Lanterns Galore!

The Lantern Festival came and went. As usual, we made mini mooncakes and held a lantern-making competition amongst the children's family. We had a great time, and the lanterns made from recycled materials really are amazing and blew the mind! Thank you, daddies and mummies for your great support. We hope that you had a great time making the lanterns with your child/ren!

Demonstrating how to put some flour into the moulds so that the paste will not stick.
Press the paste into the mould and knock it out. 

Viola!  My Mickey Mouse mooncake is out.

Gently, gently, out comes the mooncake.

Pretty mooncakes, all waiting to go home.

We also cut up the patterns on this lantern and lighted it up in the class.  Beautiful glow in the dark!

Voting is a serious matter.  Let's see... what is the number of my cloud lantern????
