I can't actually take any credit for coming up with this craft as it was Devo who came up with the idea to keep a chronically booooorrrred Sábha busy on a cold afternoon last week. Devo doesn't have a blog, however, so I'm stealing the idea to share here...
NB: This craft will require supervision as it does involve both glass and permanent markers - so do take care!
You Will Need:
A Picture Frame
Sharpies/Colourful Permanent Markers
A Colouring book
- Choose a picture you love from a colouring book or print one out if you prefer.
- Dismantle the picture frame and place the glass carefully on top of the picture (an adult should definitely do this bit - and anything that involves moving the glass!)
- Use a black permanent marker to trace around the outline of the picture. When you've finished, place the glass onto a plain sheet of paper and make sure all of the details are complete.
- Colour in your picture!
- When the picture is complete, place it in the frame with some white card as a backing - look how lovely it is!
Sábha is really proud of her creation and it was the perfect boredom buster that brought sunshine to a wintry day. What picture would your little one love to turn into 'stained glass'?!
