Easy Christmas Art - Faux Stained Glass

Looking for an easy art project to try this Christmas? This STEAM Christmas art activity is perfect for children of any age to try and only uses a few materials you have at home already!

With Christmas nearly upon us, it can be tricky getting everything done. Working full time, my house is not a pretty sight with a serious cleanup required before any tree putting up can be done. In order to keep the kids busy while I washed the floors, I created this easy Christmas activity for them to do. Perfect for children of mixed ages, you don't need many materials at all to recreate this beautiful fake stained glass art.

I'm always on the looking out for different canvases to use. Earlier in the year I loved how Babble Dabble Do used some lasagna sheets to create their gorgeous Pasta Stained Glass Craft and with some sheets leftover from dinner the night before, I thought they'd be perfect for creating these faux stained glass panels.

They are so easy to make! 

Just rule up a simple design using a ruler and black Sharpie to replicate the lead work in real stained glass. We decided on these geometric designs. After ruling up our picture, we then used our collection of other Sharpies to add the colour to recreate the effect of different coloured glass like in a real stained glass window.

Of course they could be any design you wish. While I drew up some Christmas trees for my youngest, the older two did their own.
