Kid Art: Stained Glass

April 3, 2012

Of the tissue paper variety, that is…

We got the idea for this project from Maryann Kohl’s book, First Art, but I’ve also seen it in many other incarnations all over the internet.  This is simply some tissue paper torn and placed on a few self-adhesive laminating sheets.  Once we had tissue paper as we liked it on each sheet, we carried the sheets over and stuck them directly to the window around O’s kitchen, which has its own little nook within the “big” kitchen.

We open the curtains each morning and close them each evening.  We love to see the light come in through the different colors of tissue paper, especially in the afternoon.  We enjoyed this project so much, I’m looking forward to trying it with other materials in the future.  How beautiful would brightly colored leaves be in the Fall?

What projects are happening in your home right now?

Read-Along Update:
I’m thinking we’ll start soon.  Has everyone had a chance to get your hands on a copy?  Does anyone need more time?
Oh, and a few titles I’m thinking of for another time are Unconditional Parenting and The Continuum Concept.  Any thoughts on either of these?

    What a great idea! What other materials do you plan on using if you try it again in the future?

      Hi Meghan!
      I think leaves would be beautiful in the autumn… Perhaps paper snowflakes in winter… The possibilities are endless really!
      Thanks for stopping by! :)
