made beautiful stained glass paper plates with typical things from our hoard of
craft supplies. They look lovely hanging on our window and the kids were able
to make them with little assistance from me. Even my son (Little Dragon,
toddler) made his own colorful craft and he usually doesn’t stay long at the
craft table. My daughter (Little Tiger, preschooler) kept requesting more paper
plates to design, and I myself really enjoyed doing this activity along with
them. Each paper plate turned out stunning and unique, a perfect Process Art activity!
Stained Glass Paper Plate Craft
|Pin me please! 🙂|
1. Cut a circle out of the center of the paper plate. Have child paint paper plate and set it aside to dry.
2. Cut out a circular piece of contact paper that is larger then the hole in the paper plate. You can use the piece you cut out of the paper plate as a reference (not a template). Place the sticky part of the contact paper to the back of the paper plate so the sticky side of the contact paper is on the same side of the paper plate that was painted. You may need to secure the contact paper with tape.
3. Cut out different sized pieces of yarn and have the child use them to make a design on the contact paper.
4. Once their design is completed have the child paint the holes inside the yarn design. Once the paint is dry, hang the paper plate on the window and see it glow! 🙂
