It has been an awesome summer and I am so glad I’ve been able to participate with The Craft Nest’s Summer Camp Series. Summer may be wrapping up, but I’ve got an awesome fun kid craft project! I love the look of stained glass. It is always so gorgeous and has a very pretty quality. I’ve got an easy way for the kids to have fun and make artwork that looks like stained glass.
- corn syrup
- food coloring
- printable stained glass painting sheets
Pour corn syrup on a plate or in a bowl. Mix a small amount of food coloring in the corn syrup.
Give the kids a paint brush and let them lay it on thick. No seriously. It looks better when it is spread on thicker.
It is also best to have them wear an apron, or better yet a swimsuit because it can get messy. My niece totally got it in her hair so it might be best to pull it back too.
It is looks so beautiful. It was even fun when the colors mixed together. It created a tie dye effect.
She is so happy with how it turned out. And she didn’t even want to leave an inch of the paper white.
A little football love for the boys. Plus another tie dye type stained glass painting.
After the paintings are all done, let them dry overnight. Be careful not to set other papers or anything on top of the paintings. They will get stuck and rip the works of art.
