Stained Glass Tree
This sun catching tree is super simple to make. Copy the pattern on green construction paper. (The picture makes the tree look black, but it is actually green) Cut out the center. Have lots of ½” strips of black construction paper ready. Students glue the black strips to the back of the tree, crisscrossing to form different sections. Caution them to not have any spaces that are too small. Then cut tissue paper to fill the spaces. If you want, another green tree shape can be glued to the back to cover the paper ends.
