Stained Glass Window

Stained Glass Window craft

Open a window on kids' creativity with imitation stained glass. Children boost their brain skills as they visualize, plan, and create this beautiful display of color.

  • 1.

    Admire stained glass windows in homes, stores, and religious buildings, or pictures of them from a cereal or shoe box. Notice how the areas of colored glass are usually surrounded by black or silver outlines.

  • 2.

    Cut a window shape (round, arched, rectangle, square) out of black construction paper with Crayola® Scissors.

  • 3.

    Fold the paper three or four times, similar to the way you would make a paper snowflake. Cut out shapes along the folds to make spaces for your stained glass. Open up the paper to see your design.

  • 4.

    Cut brightly colored pieces of plastic wrap to cover the holes. Experiment with two or three layers to create bright colors. Tape the plastic wrap on the back of the window with clear adhesive tape.

  • 5.

    Decorate the front of your stained glass window with Crayola Crayons.
