A great craft for the school holidays, particularly if you have some contact left over from school book covering. Kids will love having little bejewelled pieces to hang from their windows.

Have everything ready before the kids start because letís face it, contact is a fickle beast and EVERYTHING sticks to my kids!

Time: 25 minutes
Age: Under 5s, 5 to 10s
Level: Medium (some preparation required)

Materials
Clear Contact
Scissors
String, cotton, ric rac or curling ribbon
Assorted craft bits eg. glitter, glitter glue, feathers, stars, sequins, little bits of tissue paper etc.

Method
Cut squares of contact.
Cut a long piece of string, cotton or curling ribbon, long enough to run through a few squares (or diamonds) of contact.
Place a square in front of each child, sticky side up.



Treasure Window Step 1


Let the kids go nuts with glitter shakers, feathers, stars, sequins, little bits of tissue paper etc.



Treasure Window Step 1


Once they are done, place string through the centre of the contact piece (leaving room at top to hang from and extra room beneath for more 'windows' if desired) and carefully place a second piece of contact over the top to seal it.



Treasure Window Step 1


Repeat as desired.
And there you have it, some little bejewelled pieces to hang from their windows.
