Tissue Paper Silhouettes
This is a great, easy project that can keep your kids busy for a little while. And they're even display worthy!
printed outlines of the shape you want (I chose sleigh, deer and Santa hat)
colored cardstock (trimmed to 8x10 if you're going to frame them)
Cut out the shape and trace on the cardstock using pencil
Cut small squares of tissue paper.
Bunch up one square into a ball.
Dip it in glue and put it on the paper, repeating until the whole shape is filled in.
I made the deer, Emily did the sleigh, and Meagan did the hat. I was actually really proud of myself for just letting them do theirs alone, and not going back in to fill gaps when they were finished :)
I stuck them into plain black frames and left the glass off. Now they're hanging by our table, and the girls are so proud that they made one!
