Enjoyed a small Moon Festival in the park


We usually meet up with the local FCC group for our annual Moon Festival, but this year felt like doing our own thing. So the girls and I went on a Dollar Tree and Michael’s shopping trip for lantern supplies, then invited a few folks to a little park near our house where we all had picnic dinners, made lanterns, shared mooncakes and other desserts, and hung out.



The night was a big success, with one tiny absence: The Moon! Did you know that the moon rises 30 minutes later every night? I do now... and will check the moon calculator next time.

Anyhow, if you want to make your own lanterns, here are the instructions Ro and I made and printed out for the kiddos (click and print):


We Brought These Supplies:
- Colored cardstock (2 reams, Michael’s)
- Stamps and washable ink pads (Michael’s has cute Chinese characters)
- Stickers (Dollar store)
- Bag of tinsel stuff from the party section (Dollar store)
- Staplers and extra staples (had already)
- Tape (had it)
- Scissors (Dollar store, bought enough so each kiddo had one)
- Felt Pens (had them)
- Patterned wrapping paper (dollar bin at Michael’s)
