Stained Glass Painting for Kids {Summer Camp Instructor}

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.

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.
