Easy preschool Christmas craft
I found this adorable stained glass nativity on Pinterest and I couldn’t wait to make it with my kids. This nativity project is perfect to make with your preschooler this Christmas, and will look great hanging in your window, or on your Christmas tree.
Stained Glass Nativity materials:
- Contact paper
- Nativity Silhouette – Free Nativity Printable
- Colorful tissue paper cut into squares
- Print and cut out your nativity
- Lay out your contact paper sticky side up.
- Center your nativity silhouette on top of the contact paper.
- Begin placing squares of tissue paper inside the nativity silhouette to create the look of stained glass.
- Once the nativity is filled with tissue paper, lay a second sheet of contact paper on top of the entire project. Be careful not to trap air bubbles.
- Trim the excess contact paper with scissors.
- You can either tape your stained glass nativity to your window or use a hole punch and hang it from a string. Either way, it will look great.
We also created mini stained glass nativity ornaments. We used the same process above. I just shrunk the nativity on my printer, and cut the squares of tissue paper smaller.
I think the kids actually enjoyed making the mini version better.
Both versions are adorable and a fun treasure to pull out each Christmas. They would also look great as gift tags, or on special Christmas cards.
