The kids and I love to decorate the windows. We often paint directly to the glass but sometimes you want something that's easily removable like this easy stained glass art project.
First I cut the sides of a plastic sheet protector so that it folded open. Then I gave Kiddo some colored cellophane that I had cut into shapes. A better alternative would be to have the child cut out shapes, but that kind of focus was beyond Kiddo today.
Kiddo placed the shapes on the plastic. It seems so obvious now, but I had not thought of putting the cellophane on both sides of the plastic! As he did that I thought, "ooooh, color mixing! Excellent twist."
Once Kiddo was done we taped it shut and hung it up in the window. It was pretty challenging to get a photo without the fire escape or child safety bars in the background!
UPDATE: you can also take a look at our awesome Cellophane Stained Glass Window Art that we made with a soap and water solution!
