You can make lantern chains like the ones I use to decorate my ship!
All you need is construction paper, scissors and a glue stick.
I would use paper too but, deep underwater, paper doesn’t work.
These lanterns don’t glow like mine do, but It seems you would have lots of sunlight up there anyway.
I woulden’t want things to be too bright. Your eyes might hurt. Except at night.
At night you can make a Glowfish Lantern!
It’s very dark in the deep ocean.
I have to keep lots of glow-in-the-dark fish in my shipwreck.
If I don’t, I bump into things.
I heard that on the surface of the ocean it can get very dark sometimes too.
I heard there are things called stars that sparkle in the sky.
Down here, I can’t see these stars.
Because I don’t have stars, I made a special star lantern.
When I turn it on, stars appear on my ceiling.
Because you already have stars, I invented a different sort of lantern.
It makes glowing fish appear on the ceiling when it gets dark enough.
How many fish can your ceiling hold? How big will they be?
Make a glow fish lantern if you want to find out!
Now, let’s try something a little tougher.
Let’s make a paper model of a Pokian.
All you need is paper and Scissors.
. . . and an airtight water-proof box, but only if your a Pokian.
Now that you have gotten this far, I think I should warn you –
unlike me, the paper Pokian is not water-proof. I took it out
of the box just now, and it got all soggy. I will have to start over,
but you can go on ahead.
Model Pokians may look very different from the end picture.
Mine looks just like a crumpled-up piece of paper.
loved the cute story and the fantastic lantern!
Hey, your the first one to come back here.
Thanks for noticeing my “Ruke Section”
The lanturn works better with some types
of lights – and not at all with others – I had
to try a lot of different flashlights. An LED
with a single blub worked best.
they look beautiful, dont they? paper lanterns?
I think they origionated in China.
Thanks for helping us to a very special light. May we be enlightened 😉
By the way origami is quite popular in the anthroposophic movement in Germany too.
Thank you very much for your funny poem you wrote on my blog. GREAT!
Greeting from the sunny coast of Norfolk
and too you, from the great gulf of mexico! 😀
I’ve always been interested in the apple tree story.
I wonder if it is true or only a legond?
There is a story taught to children in the U.S. – that
our first president General Geroge Washington was
so honest that (when he was a boy) he confessed to
chopping down one of the beautiful cherry trees
planted in the city of washington – even though he
knew everone would be mad at him –
Recently I heard the story was made up as fable to
teach children to be honest.
The cherry trees were not planted until much lator –
though there was a recent insident where a beavor
chewed down one of the trees.
I think they should name the beavor George. 😉
