Lori's Crafty Spot creating a window collage Did you see the pretty window collage on the wonderful Filth Wizardry blog? I was inspired to do something similar with the children at preschool. The first step was to cut and/or tear different colours of tissue paper. We used our clear perspex easel instead of a window. Different kids arrived at different times and added their tissue paper to the easel. I had envisioned (a la filth wizardry) that the easel would be completely covered like this: But the children had other ideas. They carried over other collage materials and added them to the mix: Although it didn't turn into a stained glass window it still succeeded as a communal collage experience - and this week it will turn into a communal washing up experience!
