Have fun creating your own stained glass effect window art. Younger ones will enjoy just sticking coloured pieces on to make a colourful collage. Older kids can cut out detailed shapes to make a defined picture.
Making art on a patio door
Time: 30 minutes
Age: Any age
Bowl of soapy water
Cut the cellophane into shapes if you want to make a defined picture. Alternatively just cut pieces up out of different colours. We cut out pieces of blue and yellow to make a sea scene with some red fish and green water weeds.
Mix a bowl of soapy water (we used a squirt of regular dish soap in a bowl of water).
Brush the soapy water onto a window or patio door window. (You might want to lay a towel underneath to catch any drips).
Press the coloured cellophane shapes onto the wet glass. They should cling on. Brush a little more soapy water on top where you want to put on another layer of a different colour.
The cellophane should peel off easily again when dry. Don't forget to take a photo as a keepsake of your creation (and please do upload a picture to the comments section - we'd love to see it!)
