Just thought of another tissue paper lesson I do with my middle
schoolers, probably adaptable to younger ages. Use small torn bits of
colored tissue paper (the unbleedable colors) to apply to the outside of
babyfood jars (jelly jars, small recycled jars, etc.) with polymer
medium. Overlap. When dry use a black permanent marker (caution with
young kids) to draw "lead" lines around the shapes. Add a votive candle
or pour a candle to create a stained glass window candle holder. If
threads show at the top of the jar, cover with a ribbon or whatever.
Send home with a note about proper candle burning (trim wick to about a
1/4 inch, lit candle should never be unattended, put on heat-proof pad
or trivit while burning.) Makes nice holiday gifts.
