Sparkly Acetate Animals

So this week the children got into making Sparkly Acetate Animals. They are filled with confetti so when you give them a shake, all the confetti moves around and sparkles in the light!

First of all they decided on their shape, drew it onto some A4 paper and cut the shapes out of 2 sheets of Acetate.

Then they got some strips of selotape and carefully secured the two shapes together, all round the edges, leaving a hole or approx 1 inch space.

Next they fed some confetti shapes into the hole and sealed it up.

Finally they added glass painted features on the top of their animal.

Love this project! Great process and beautiful results. Here are some of the finished ones - enjoy!
