Size: 5 panels each of 10 x 6 inches.
A five sided Advent Lantern that makes a lovely accompaniment to the book The Light in the Lantern by Georg Dreißig.
There are seven stories for each week of Advent, starting from the first Advent Sunday. When Advent is shorter, more than one story can be read in a day. It is similar with the lantern’s little windows: the first of its five sides belongs to the first week of Advent, and so on, until on either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day the large door on page five is opened.
The finished calendar lantern measures 10 x 6 inches and will stand freely on the table. Illustrated by Cécile Acmanne-Borgogno and printed in France.
Please note: The Calendar was printed in 2 parts: the inner pictures and the outer starry sky. While your children cannot see the magic happening, assemble the parts of the lantern. Begin by re-folding the inner card into an even 5-sided form. Then insert the 2 tongues at one end into the slots at the other end to hold its shape. Now, take the outer card, align the large doors with the illustration of the crib, and ‘wrap’ it around the inner card. To finish, insert the 2 tongues into the slots provided.
After Christmas, gently disassemble, store flat and it will be ready again for next year.
