In my opinion, already in preschool age, you can note some of the abilities of the child. If he likes to draw, and by nature he is very diligent, why not try to master the process of making stained glass?
Of course, in this case we are not talking about stained glass windows and difficult ways of connecting them together. Now on sale there are special paints, which are called so – stained glass. With their help, the child can not only make a stained glass window, but even if desired, transfer it several times from one surface to another!
Making a stained glass window by a child
So for this exciting activity You will need the following materials:
Stencils can be used from today’s collection, or you can download suitable pictures on the Internet or buy ready-made plastic stained glass windows. Of course, for the first time you should choose a simpler drawing.
So, first you need to attach the stencil to the file, and apply the outline directly on the film. This is where your help is needed – you need to show the child to extrude the contour from the tube so that the line is almost the same thickness everywhere.
The future appearance of the stained glass depends on the quality of the contour. All lines must necessarily be closed, otherwise the colors can spread and spoil everything.
It is necessary to wait for the complete drying of the contour and then proceed to the application of paints. They will create a thin transparent film, so it can then be carefully removed and glued to any place chosen for stained glass – a door, a refrigerator, glass, a mirror and other smooth surfaces.
First, the child will need your help and tips, and over time this activity can become independent. I think you will like this process too! 🙂
