10 Minute Crafts – Holidays – Make a Stained-Glass Picture

My friend Cé and her little one spent some time with us one evening, and the children had decided to try making stained-glass artwork. All children aged 2 and above got involved, and they did a great job making an underwater scene. It makes me want to go back on holidays!

What you need:

Contact paper
Black card
Craft knife and ruler
Tissue paper
Fish shapes in black or various colours
Optional:
glitter
transparent coloured paper (or sweet wrappers)
Ocean-themed embellishments

What to do: 

Start by making a frame with the black card. We went for 2cm. The adult in charge will have to do that. I cut three pieces of card at the same time to save time.

Cut the contact paper slightly larger than frame, about 2 extra cm on each side, so that you can stick your little one’s finished artwork on a window later on.
Peel the contact paper and add the frame in the middle.

    That looks fab! I might give it a go – now autumn is here we’re going to need more indoor activities for the kids. x
