On a recent visit to the awe inspiring Waddesdon Manor, my 4 year old was impressed by a display of small stained glass art hanging from one of the windows. We decided to create our own version at home.

Time: 20 minutes
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
Tracing paper
Black marker
Crayons
Black card if you want to frame your art

Method
Using your black pen, draw the outlines of pictures or shapes. These will represent the lead. We were lucky enough to look at stained glass up close at Waddesdon Manor but you could visit a local church or have a look on the Internet so your child can see what what the real thing looks like.
Older children will manage this themselves or could easily trace from a book.
We also visited an exhibition at Waddesdon Manor of a Roman mosaic that had come from Israel. It had lots of animals including fish, so this was our second inspiration.

Colour in using a variety of crayons.
Stick to a window to see your creation light up as the sunlight shines through.
We decided to go one step further an made a frame from some black card.
