Shine a Light for Children - Lantern Project 2018


What We Do

Hands on Art is proud to be offering the Shine a Light for Children - Lantern Project in 2018. The statewide project is supported by Queensland Child Protection Week Committee and Kids Help Line.

We invite you to join us in making special paper lanterns in honour of Child Protection Week 2nd - 8th September 2018.

Wherever you live in Queensland you can join in the fun alongside schools, kindergartens, day care centres, hospitals, government and community organisations.


With our easy to follow DIY lantern making PDF you can create your own beautiful lanterns with your students, family or community group members.

We have provided 3 different types of lanterns to support a variety of ages, abilities, and budgets.
