Chinese Lantern Plant Children
My fall greetings to you!
May your light shine for all.
Fall is coming! We made 2 Chinese Lantern Plant (Physalis alkekengi) children for Miss Brooke’s First Grade classroom fall nature table.
The little lantern children were so happy to receive their lanterns for these darker days of fall!
I got theses “lanterns” from Jackie, a gardener in New York from Etsy.com. Click here if you need some lanterns from Jackie.
The Crafting Process
Here is my 6 year old assistant, diligently cutting out pants for the dolls…
We made several Chinese Lantern Plant Children dolls that autumn…
- 2 were donated to a Waldorf First Grade classroom.
- 1 was given as a gift to a friend and neighbor.
- 1 was donated to our Waldorf School and it was sold at the fall fundraiser silent auction. The little guy now lives in Newport Beach, California.
- One or more still sits in my craft room at home.
It is a joy to give!
