WHOAAAAA! IT will be nearly impossible to get off!! Don't do it with glue!!!
It might be better with liquid starch to paint the tissue on, but even that
is pretty rock hard when dry. I wouldn't do either. But here's an idea
Can you have the kids work on big pieces of Saran Wrap (or any clear plastic
wrap), and then static electricity will keep the wrap sticking to the
windows, with help from some tape. If you live in a very cold climate, you
will definitely need the tape.
I would tape the Saran Wrap (actually, my favorite is Stretch Tight) to the
kids' worktables --- cover the entire table with it. Then have the kids cut
out shapes from colored tissue, and paint them onto the plastic wrap. Dry
overnight or several hours. Then tape the big sheets of colored plastic into

Go to: http://brightring.com/nailcollage.html
to see the illustrations for this great project for ALLLLL ages. I really
like the variations listed at the end too. The way kids just love to hammer,
this is always a hit (no pun intended).

base wood piece, about 8" x 8", or
any other size
nails in all sizes and variety
1.Hammer the nails into the wood square which is the base. The idea of this
collage is to use the highs and lows of the nail heights to make a design.
Also, the sizes of the nail-heads will add to the design. Some nails are
black and some are silvery, others are gray, and some are white. Use this
for design and form. Nails can be very close together, or spaced farther
apart. The design is completely up to the artist.
2.When the collage is complete, the nails can be pulled out again (some
artists really enjoy this!), or the collage can be displayed.
- Add other items into the collage such as those found in
Design Board, p.134 of Scribble Art. Add screws, nuts, bolts, and other
- Cover the collage with aluminum foil, with nails poking through or
with nails making a bumpy design under the foil.
- Cover the board before beginning with foil, paint, paper, or fabric.
