Shapes Cellophane Window Craft

This is another idea from my daughter's Japanese elementary textbook. You can make simple, colorful windows from cardboard and cellophane.

Materials:

  • cardboard
  • various colored cellophane
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • tape

Directions:

  1. Give each child a big piece of cardboard. They can draw big geometric shapes on the cardboard and cut out. The teacher may have to help with a box cutter.
  2. Tape different colored pieces of cellophane over the holes.
  3. Take the cardboard outside in the sun. Have students hold up the cardboard so the sun shines through onto the ground or a wall.
I thought if you could put together some big pieces of cardboard, you could make a house.
