Stained Glass Snowflakes
Dreaming of a winter wonderland? This snowflake craft combines cellophane paper with traditional snowflakes to turn them into colorful, light-catching, stained-glass inspired works of art. Try this activity to engage your child in folding and cutting creative window decals to brighten up the house.
What You Need:
- Sheets of paper
- 7-8-inch plate
- Colored cellophane
What You Do:
- Have your child trace a kitchen plate on the paper for a perfect cirlce. Cut it out.
- Repeat step one, so you have two circles.
- Stack the circles on top of each other and fold them into quarters. It should look like a wedge of pie.
- Now, like a traditional paper snowflake, have your child cut out designs from the centers of the wedge. Make sure not to cut the outer edges, which will be glued together.
- Cut out a cellophane circle slightly smaller than the snowflakes.
- Lift one paper snowflake up and place the cellophane circle in the center, and then place the other snowflake on top, sandwiching the cellophane in between.
- Line up the the snowflakes perfectly so the cellophane shows through the design.
- Glue the two snowflakes together along the edges.
Your snowflakes are now ready to display!
