I was inspired by my blogging pal, Maria (Kinder-Craze) and all her darling window art that has been popping up on her blogs over the last several months. So I decided it was time I try my kinder friends out with the same idea, only a new theme.
Our science curriculum has had us studying fish over the last 2 weeks, so we took the stained glass theme and gave it an aquatic twist. I was surprised at how simple the project was for them to complete and how great they turned out. What do you think?
If you’d like the template for this fish, I got it at pbsworks. Just click on their name and it will take you the the template. I cut the fish in half and traced it onto a folded piece of black paper. Then I cut the inside of the fish out leaving only a small frame.
That piece got placed on a piece of contact paper for my students to fill with tissue paper.
Once it’s full, place another piece of contact paper on top to seal it, (Can you believe this is how people used to laminate in the old days?) and then cut the excess contact paper off. Ta-dah! Not bad for a newbie huh?
This was a quick and easy project for me and for more ideas for stained glass crafts, don’t forget to check out Maria’s Kinder-Craze blog full of stained glass crafts I just love that girl.
