Its all about the children this week as we have a few days off work but we are all ill so we’re mostly stuck inside. I put together this quick craft idea so my youngest could easily create something with no mess……..well…very little mess…. there’s always ‘some’ mess 🙂
- Paper – any colour I used black and it was A4 size
- Tissue paper – a selection of colours is nice
- Sticky back plastic/book covering film A4 size to match paper
You will be left with a heart that has one sticky side.
….I really didn’t need this many photo’s to explain that I am sure….
…on to the fun bit. Rip up or cut shapes out of tissue paper and let your little one stick them on the shape, wherever they want, however they want, just encourage them to keep them flat as much as possible.
The stickiness of the plastic just makes it so simple, in fact we used book covering film and she could re-position the tissue paper if she wanted which was great. It was old though so that may be why!
Its really cute and effective and I think we should make more and have a full stained glass window effect 🙂
I think it would be useful to make a few shapes up but leave the backing on with some tissue paper in a sandwich bag so if you need something to keep the little one busy, you can grab one quick and off they go.
