Snowman Stained Glass Windows - Christmas Crafts For Kids - Our Little House in the Country What you do:

  • Draw your design onto the dark coloured paper
  • Cut out the design, I actually did this for my children (5 & 2), I usually insist on them doing the cutting but this part of the project can be a little tricky for little fingers.
  • Punch lots of little holes all over the sheet for snowflake or use a snowflake punch.
  • Cut or tear the tissue paper in smaller pieces.
  • Cut a piece of white tissue paper to the size of the original sheet of paper
  • Glue around the edges of each space
  • Stick the tissue paper onto the page.
  • Stick the white piece of tissue paper so that it fully covers the back of the sheet of paper
  • Flip the page over and glue on googly eyes, a nose and a mouth (scraps of coloured paper) and stars for buttons on the snowman’s body.
  • Display the finished snowman on a window!
