Today’s craft was so much fun! I loved that we used our imagination and creativity to turn a boring summer hour into a creative time!
I purchased, at the dollar store, three Paper Stained Glass Animal kits. They are right in the craft area and were $1. I got a fish, a dog and a butterfly!
Megan chose the fish, Sarah chose the puppy and Katie the butterfly. We followed the directions and glued the pieces together -careful not to use too much glue – and then I took a paintbrush and brushed the inside of the “glass” with a thin layer of glue. The girls used the thin pieces of paper and added the “stained glass”.
That was all the instructions asked us to do. But I took it one step further and had them glue their animals to a large piece of construction paper. I then asked them to draw the animals “habitat”. We sparked a conversation about all of the things that can live around these animals!
It was a ton of fun and so easy!
I would recommend using glue sticks if you have them. Then the kids could do more of the gluing!
