    Vesak Lantern or Kite Making for Kids


    Vesak is one of the most important festivals in Sri Lanka and marks the birth, death, and enlightenment of the Buddha – all of which is said to have happened on the full moon day in May. During this sacred time, devotees from across the country craft colourful lanterns made from bamboo and paper which they illuminate and hang outside their homes. Each shape has a symbolic meaning. Every Sri Lankan has made one of these beautiful, handcrafted lanterns growing up, and making these are a family affair with parents, children and grandparents get involved. On this hands-on activity, our staff will share their Vesak lantern making techniques with your child and demonstrate how these elegant lanterns are crafted and decorated. Depending upon the ages of the participants, the children will be shown how the frame is made before being invited to get involved in theprocess of sticking, pasting (and personalising!) the lantern. Sri Lankans are also expert kite makers so if your child would prefer to make a kite instead, please inquire about the availability of this with one of the team.
