Niko and the Sword of Light Review
Niko and the Sword of Light is a new Amazon Kids show. This Niko and the Sword of Light review and craft is sponsored by our friends at Amazon Kids and Niko and the Sword of Light and all opinions and ideas are my own!
It is very exciting, magical, whimsical, adventurous, and hilarious. We were able to watch the shows already and my kids loved it! They are 3 and 8. My 3 year old is about to turn 4. When the first episode was over they thought it was too short and wanted to watch more. Luckily we were sent 14 episodes to watch, and we got to binge watch it for a couple of hours the following day!

Niko and the Sword of Light Craft
Because of the mythical and whimsical nature of the show, I decided to make a tissue paper lantern but use the silhouettes of Niko’s magical sword and the show’s princess! I love working in Adobe so I created this FREE Niko and the Sword of Light printable for you to use in your lantern! These lanterns are super easy to make and I am not the one who invented mod podging tissue paper on jars but I can guarantee I am the first to take the inspiration of the show to create this magical lamp! My girls LOVE theirs and they look amazing in their rooms too! You can embellish them any way you want but the printables are definitely what makes this a fun craft if you do a Niko viewing party! Be sure to watch our video on how to make your Niko lantern!
What you need:
Niko and the Sword of Light Printable Silhouettes
Battery Powered Lights (I like the timed ones that are on for 6 hours every 24 hours. That way my kids remember to turn them off.)
How to do your craft (watch the video below):
I turned the lights off to show you the lantern in action! Isn’t it beautiful! I don’t do TONS of crafts so you can totally pull this one off easily! A great project for classrooms too if you can get the supplies!

Those are pretty cool lanterns you made. Niko and the Sword of Light sounds like a fun show that my grandchildren, the six, nine and eleven year old would like.
You really are very crafty! I do love those lanterns–so pretty and eye catching. I have no kids so probably will not be watching this animated comic–I am sure from what you have said that all children will love it!

I hadn’t heard of this series before, it sounds like it incorporates a good bit of culture. The paper lanterns are cute, I bet they look great in the dark.

This is a really cool craft idea that my kids would love for me to do! I will have to make the Niko Swork of Light Craft with them this summer. Thanks for sharing.

I will have to tell my nieces and nephew about this show. It sounds like one they would enjoy.

I haven’t heard of this show before but I love the art style. It looks so pretty. Also the adventure style reminds me of Anime so I might have to check this out.

This is really neat. A cool and simple craft to do with my kiddos
