My favorite classroom window decorations (especially during the holiday season) are student-made stained glass windows. They are so colorful and add a touch of elegance to the windows. They are so simple to create! Simply print out some coloring pages that have a lot of detail and/or resemble stained glass. I downloaded these free online simply by doing a google search for free coloring pages.
Have the students choose a coloring page and color it. Encourage them to color every space.
You will need vegetable oil for the next step. This is the “magic ingredient” that make the coloring page translucent.
Take a cotton ball and dip it into a small amount of the vegetable oil. Dab the back of the coloring page with the oil.
Once the entire page is dabbed with oil and looks translucent, let it dry overnight.
Once dry, hang them in a sunny window.
