What you need:
Step 2. Fold the cardboard over and cut out an Easter egg shape so you have two eggs exactly the same that are joined by a thin spine.
Step 3. Keeping the egg shapes folded, use the scalpel and craft punches to create various shapes that will be "coloured" by the cellophane. If the scalpel doesn’t cut through both sheets entirely, keep them together and use the first one as a stencil to cut through the second one. This part of the Easter craft is mum or dad only!
Step 4. Cut the cellophane into various shapes and sizes: strips, squares, circles, etc.
Step 5. Separate the two cardboard eggs by opening them out like you would a book and using the scissors to cut the joining spine (you may need to round the edges where the joined spine was so to get a proper egg shape). Set one aside and have your child apply glue on one side of the cardboard egg.
Step 6. Let your child stick on the colourful cellophane however they wish over the egg shape. Don’t worry if the cellophane goes beyond the shape of the egg as you can fix that later.
Step 7. Now glue the other cardboard egg shape to the cellophaned egg shape.
Step 8. Press both sheets together and smooth over with your hand.
Step 9. Trim around the outside of the stained glass egg, cutting off any excess cellophane. Hang with Blu-Tack or punch a hole in the top and hang from a curtain rod in front of a window with string or fishing line.
This is a special mention to our girls Jaimee Stott and Margaret Wallace for their exceptional work on the floor at JMA this
Girls, I was so impressed to see you in action today. After discussing with a father about his sons progress, I turned to my yellow belt
class to find two highly capable, confident coaches, not only leading the class but dividing the children into groups specific to the skills they needed to work on.
I felt so proud to see the care and attention to detail that was shown, you are both showing so many of the traits of a strong role model and
The same goes for all our junior coaches. Over the past few months Sam and I have seen remarkable development in Chris, Josh, Daniel,
Margaret and Jaimee. Your parents must be so proud to see you all showing such strong leadership qualities and demonstrating such maturity whilst executing your coaching duties.
Well done kids – YOU have truly inspired us!
