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:
Craft knife and ruler
Fish shapes in black or various colours
transparent coloured paper (or sweet wrappers)
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.
If you are looking for quick and easy activities to try with your children, why not try our washi tape cards, toilet paper roll bunnies, reindeer lanterns, cute button card, paper cup dragon, finger painting, bath painting, thumbprint art, heart-themed crafts, seashell frame, scrapbooking-style card, embroidered canvas or even make your own play dough?
