stained-glass craft

I was really excited to make this simple stained-glass craft with the kiddos, but surprised by how quickly they lost interest.

First, I cut tissue paper into pieces and the kids mixed a solution of equal parts water and glue.

Next, they "painted" wax paper with the glue, stuck bits of tissue paper on top, and covered the collage with another coat of glue.

We let the finished product dry outside for an hour or so and...

Tada! A pretty stained glass craft for our kitchen window. We'll do this craft again, but first I'll put on my thinking cap to see how it might be more interesting for them. Any ideas...?
