This lesson shows you how to make a winter wonderland scene in your window using contact paper and tissue paper.

What You Need:
What You Do:
  1. Cut 2 pieces of contact paper into a size that will fit into one window pane in your house - or, given big modern windows, whatever size you want.
  2. Start with the old classic: snowflakes. Help your child create one or two small snowflakes with the white tissue - small enough to fit easily into the contact paper.
  3. Peel the backing off one piece of contact paper.
  4. Use the cotton and colored tissue to create a "landscape" on the contact paper. Torn tissue makes trees and spread cotton makes snowbanks.
  5. Place the snowflakes in the sky and add glitter all around (the snow is falling)!
  6. Put the other piece of contact paper on top to create a closed, clear winter window wonderland. Put it in your window and enjoy.
