Instructables
Hi Folks,
Weeks ago, me and my 3y.o. son, build up a paper lamp. We use it as a desk lamp, but it can be hanged with some strings to a stick and place inside a little tea candle to light your night walks trough the River Promenade or somewhere cool place...

Step 1: B.O.M.

Materials you need:
-Paper (I use the one called in spanish "Papel de seda" or "Silk paper" what is a thin, coloured and very "organic" kind of paper, but I don't know how is called in english because I found in dictionary translated as "Tissue Papper", but I'm not sure about is the same kind of paper...)
-A Balloon
- White glue
-Scissors,
-brush,
-A bowl or plate,
-Water,
-15 or 20 inches of some thread or string.

Step 2: Preparation

1- Cut enough paper pieces of about 2x2". If You cut them regularly is good, but if you cut them irregularly, is better!
2- Put a little bit of white glue in the bowl and mix it up with the same quantity of water using one brush.
3- Inflate the balloon and tie a 15 or 20 inches of string or thread to the balloon knot. (Used to hold and hang the lamp)

Thanks!
Yes, the kids can have fun doing it, and with my son, when we turn the light on, he is really proud of it!
