Looking for a fun-to-make stained glass craft for kids to make? You will love how you can transform your front door or window into a word of art – modern art or stainglass craft.
Art Project for Kids
Brighten up a dreary winter day, announce the beginning of spring, or get ready for Easter with a stunning stained glass art for kids that uses liquid chalk to make a bold statement.
This craft for kids has a very modern art feal with all the bold colors and lines. It sort of reminds me of Mondrian, except the lines are more angled and retro and the colors are more vibrant and eye catchinig.
Stained Glass Craft
We did this project to welcome spring! We just love how our faux stained glass window turned out and I know you will too! There are so many variations of patterns, colors, etc. and it is adaptable to any situation.
- Chalk Markers (we got ours on Amazon, but you can get them at craft stores like Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and Joanne Fabrics too)
- Painters Tape (you can use any thickeness you happen to have on hand)
- clean window
- Baby wipe or paper towel and windex to clean off the surface when you are done
You can do this project on any glass window or door.
Stained Glass for Kids
To make this kids stained glass window, take painters tape and make random lines throughout the glass leaving different size shapes throughout your glass. You want some big square and others that are small. Unless you are going for a Mondrian looking art project, you want it to look angular and unpredictable.
It doesn’t matter how thick your painters tape is – use whatever you have on hand leftover from your most recent panting project. Our tape was pretty thick, about 2 inches. At first I thought it would be too thick and leave big open spaces. But, I actually LOVE how it turned out. The spaces were big enough so we could still see out the door, plus it allowed lots of natural light to still get in. I also think it looks perfect when you look at the window from farther away – like neighbors walking by.
Now use liquid chalk in any color that you like to folor in the spaces. I really liked these thick markers we got as they didn’t run out or stop working mid project as I’ve heard is the case with some of the smaller markers. You will want to be careful to not press to hard or it might drip. Once we figured that out, we didn’t have any other problems.
Make sure you overlap the painters tape so it makes nice crisp lines for the best looking stained glass projects for toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners, pre k, first grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade, 6th grdae, junior high, and high school age students.
Kids Stained Glass
Once you have finished your project, carefully peel off the painters tape and put it in the garbage. This is how the stained glass window craft / front door will look from the inside of your house. See how it looks beautiful decorated with red, pink, purple, green, blue, yellow, orange, and white – but it also lets light in and allows you to see the pretty spring trees outside your window or find out who is knocking on the door.
I love that this project is super easy to clean off! Simply wipe off any spills with a baby wipe. When you are done use paper towels and glass cleaner to quickly and easily return your windows and doors back to their original see through, shiny surface as if your project never existed.
Your community will love your enjoying your brightly decorated front door or window all winter, spring, or summer long.
