Fun and Easy Stained Glass Art

At this time of the year, survival mode kicks in and we are all looking for fun AND easy activities to get through each day. This week, I've pulled out an old standby that I used to use every year with my fifth grade students - Christmas stained glass.

Are you looking for a fun, easy art activity for this Christmas season? Your students will be amazed by this DIY stained glass art project that will brighten up your classroom and school!


The students in my current 2/3 class absolutely LOVE the final result, so we've actually done this a couple of days now in preparation for next week's holiday gathering with families.

This is really very easy.

  • Begin with any seasonal coloring page. I have a set of pages with nice heavy lines like stained glass that I've had tucked away for years. 
  • Students should color the pages using heavy wax crayon.

  • Flip the page upside-down on some newspaper and squirt with a little baby oil.
