This type of lantern is often on display for Vesak in Sri Lanka, but you might see similar lanterns made out of colourful paper and wood hanging all over Asia during Buddha Day celebrations.

Use our sensory planning sheet to encourage the children to brainstorm ideas about Vesak, so they can write an exciting sensory poem for the celebration.
