Colorful suncatchers for mid-winter!
Art Project: Sticky "Stained Glass"
clear contact paper
scraps of tissue paper
Right outside my window / Hoberman, Mary Ann
What Kids Do: explore the sticky properties of contact paper
crumple the tissue paper into tiny balls
create patterns and designs
enjoy the pleasure of dumping a whole bucket of confetti!
make telescopes from the scraps
seal it up with a second sheet of contact paper
Variations to try:These collages would also look lovely with feathers, glitter.... use your imagination!
Adult Challenge: just watch. your child can't do this project "wrong" so just let them explore at their own pace. One parent told me that they had this same project from my class about a year ago. She said it was still hanging in their window (quite faded) but it was interesting to see the difference between what her son had created at that age compared with today's collage!
