(Goblin is 24 months)
When you find something that works exploit it I say. Goblin loved ripping up tissue paper when we made our paper mache bowls so I thought what else can we do with tissue paper?
I know its a bit early for halloween but I thought I'd make some halloween decorations. I got Goblin to rip up more tissue paper. I laid one sheet of pale coloured tissue paper on a plastic mat and covered it in a mix of PVA glue and water. Then Goblin and I stuck more strips of tissue paper on top, painting over them with the PVA mixture as we went. We only did one or two layers deep. We did one all orange, yellow and red, and the other mixed colours.
The great thing about this is it doesn't have to be neat, in fact the messier the better.
We left the tissue paper to dry overnight. It dries very fast and once dry will peal away from the plastic mat with ease. But if you don't have a plastic mat you can cover a tray with cling-film and use that as the base.
I stuck the silhouette on the tissue paper and cut round that too.
And there you have it - Halloween stain glass window decorations.
