Doing the Stained Glass Ornaments Craft:
To begin, your students will paint 4 popsicle sticks black and allow them to dry completely. While your wait for the popsicle sticks to dry, download the silhouette template and print out. Your students can trace the templates onto black cardstock and cut them out.
Next, they will glue the popsicle sticks into a square. While the glue is setting, your students will rip the colored tissue paper into small pieces.
You will need to help them by cutting a piece of contact paper a little larger than the size of the popsicle stick square. Then, have your students cover the sticky part of the contact paper with the tissue paper. Once it is covered in colored tissue paper, cut a second piece of contact paper a little larger than the size of the popsicle stick square and place it on top. Be sure to press out any bubbles!

Your students can then glue a small piece of twine to the top of the ornament for hanging on a Christmas tree. Their Stained Glass Ornaments is finished. These would make wonderful family keepsake gifts!
