Tissue Paper Crafts
Kids love making paper crafts very much. If your kid has no interest in these things, it is mainly because you have not inspired him or her to make these crafts. In this case, consider introducing tissue paper crafts. These crafts are very interesting and they will result in very beautiful products.
A good example of products made using tissue paper is staining on glass windows. Glass windows that are stained are a very beautiful sight. Teach your children this skill and they will forever thank you for inspiring them to become creative artists. This skill can be transformed into an income-generating activity later on in life.
Older kids can complete a whole crafts project of this variety independently. Younger kids should engage in teamwork when learning the basics of tissue paper crafts. Within such a setting, they can share ideas and learn how to cooperate for common good. With time, these kids will learn how to make different decorations that go with different holidays and occasions.
The materials that are needed are safety pair of scissors, tissue papers of different colors, a clear contact paper and colored construction papers. One side of the contact paper should have an adhesive. This eliminates the need for glue when creations are being attached to the window.
The materials have to be prepared for the task ahead as well. The teacher should be the one to make these preparations in the case of little kids with little or no prior experience.
The shape of the construction paper should be carefully determined. A geometric shape should be chosen. For older kids a complex shape such as a butterfly is the most suitable. They will inspire them to stretch their creativity beyond the obvious. Your faux glass that is stained should be at the center. Therefore, all the objects that you use need to be hollow.
The next step is to prepare the tissue paper. Different colors should be chosen in order for the final product to be very beautiful. You can cut the paper into rectangular, square, oval or any other shape of your choice. To prevent these pieces from blown away, put them in a container.
The contact paper that you want to use should be large enough to accommodate all the tissue paper shapes that you have cut out. Once you have put all these factors into consideration, the rest is about being creative and working within the instructions that are provided. You will be surprised at the beauty of the resulting tissue paper crafts.
