Youngsters can create their own garden of stained glass wildflowers with the charming, colorable drawings in this collection. Boldly outlined on translucent paper are eight different species of wildflowers whose uncultivated beauty brightens roadsides, fields, and meadows: buttercup, blue phlox, oxeye daisy, lady’s slipper, California poppy, cornflower, day lily, and rugosa rose.
The pictures are printed on special paper that allows light to shine through it. First cut the pages from the book as neatly as you can. Then color the pictures, using crayons, felt-tip pens, or paints. You’ll get particularly interesting effects if you color both sides, using different colors on the backs than on the fronts. When the pictures are taped to a window, the sunlight shines through them the same way it shines through colored glass!
