Color Transparencies on the OverheadPosted: March 9, 2012 | Author: Jena | Filed under: Artsy Fartsy, Cut and Paste, Drawing, Photography, Small Motor Skill | 1 Comment »
This idea is inspired by Artful Parent. Jean buys transparent, colorful notebook dividers at the dollar store for snipping and using on contact paper. The finished product looks beautiful when hung on a window with light shining through the pieces. Seeing this caused me to be on the hunt for some dividers for use with our overhead projector.
When I find some, I open the package and lay out the colored pieces next to a box of sharpie markers and rolls of colored tape. The boys scribble on the dividers, we work together cutting the dividers into shapes and I put a border of tape around the edges.
Now, we can arrange the pieces the way we like on the overhead projector. When the overhead projector gets played out, we can hang the transparent shapes on the windows or make a mobile with the pieces.
This is the transparencies projected onto our ceiling.
