Re: Ideas for Stained Glass-like Drawings???

We made "stain-glass"type ornaments in 2nd gr. By tracing a 8-10" circle (
lids) on a doubled sheet of black constr. paper with a white pencil,Tell them
to stick their thumb tip on top of the circle to trace and make a tab to hang
it up. cut all of it out. Then find a lid thats smaller by at least 1-1 1/2"
-trace that inside the larger. Fold both in 1/2 together and cut that smaller
circle out too. Now using wax paper or light colored tissue , cut out another
large size circle and use this as a base to glue confetti colored squares of
tissue paper on to.
If you use wax paper you can cut out 2 circles and iron them together with
the tissue sandwiched in between. Or go the easier route and just glue the
colored pieces to one side of the light colored tissue ( I use white ,with
red and green pieces ).This takes about 40.minutes and if you iron -have a
aide helping.

Older grades can vary this by making a simplified snowflake pattern for the
tissue paper to cover. ( Sandwich between two identically cut patterns)

Staple two 12X18 black sheets together . Have them trace( white pencils)
circles -triangles make a ornament shape that fills the sheet. Show
them how to curve lines on the surface of an sphere-horizontally and decorate
each strip with geo -shapes. Using the stain glass look- everything has to be
surrounded with a black outline ( pencil thick). Using x-acto knives ( and
cutting boards) they cut out the designs and fill the spaces with colored
tissue paper. To keep from going nuts use the tissue colors in layers on each
strip so you don't have to cut out small pieces.( ei: top strip -yellow, next
one-blue etc.) Separate the back from the front while gluing and when your
done with the colored tissue -glue the two sides together sandwiching the
tissue in between. This allows you to hang them up and both sides should look
Hope you can visualize this-good luck
