WINTER WONDERLAND WINDOWS
Submitted by: Felicity Green [Felicity is an art educator at the The Walters Art Gallery (fine arts museum), in Baltimore Maryland.]
This lesson shows you how to make a winter wonderland scene in your window using contact paper and tissue paper.
What You Need:
- Clear contact paper
- Cotton balls or cotton/poly fiber stuffing
- White rice paper or tissue paper
- Colored tissue paper
What You Do:
- Cut 2 pieces of contact paper into a size that will fit into one window pane in your house - or, given big modern windows, whatever size you want.
- Start with the old classic: snowflakes. Help your child create one or two small snowflakes with the white tissue - small enough to fit easily into the contact paper.
- Peel the backing off one piece of contact paper.
- Use the cotton and colored tissue to create a "landscape" on the contact paper. Torn tissue makes trees and spread cotton makes snowbanks.
- Place the snowflakes in the sky and add glitter all around (the snow is falling)!
- Put the other piece of contact paper on top to create a closed, clear winter window wonderland. Put it in your window and enjoy.
