- Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder
We read parts of Farmer Boy pg. 19,23. We also read a little history on punched tin.
Our how-to can be found at this site.
A washed out tin can, hammer, nail, awl or screwdriver, paper, pencil and a towel are all you need.
Here's another blog that shows how to do it.
Another idea for tin punching ornaments with pop cans can be found in this book.
This is a great winter handcraft. When you're done making your lantern you can set it out in the snow and watch it glow, or take a moonlit snowy walk under the stars.
