Lanterns for Matariki

Anneliese and Damon were playing tag in their granny’s garden when they found these funny looking pumpkins under a hedge. Their granny said they were called Kamokamo.

Damon shook one and it rattled some seeds fell out through a crack. So Anneliese decided to plant them.

When they came back a week later they had grown vines and found some small Kamokamo. Anneliese tried one and said it taste good and tasted like zucchini.

A week later they found that they were rotten with mould they washed the mouldy shells in soapy water and cut holes in them.

Their Granny put candles in them and lit them.

They made the lanterns to celebrate Matariki
