What you need to make the stained glass Easter eggs:
How to make the stained glass craft:
Begin by printing these Easter egg templates to use. We chose to print and make all of them, but you can certainly print only the pages you need.
Once your templates are printed mix your metallic blue glue.
Do this by pouring half of the glue into a container to save for future use, and add the metallic blue acrylic paint to the white glue and mix. Shake this vigorously until all of the glue and paint has mixed together.
Choose to outline the Easter egg suncatchers in either the gold glitter glue, or the blue metallic glue, and fill in all of the black lines on the eggs. These nice thick lines from the glue will help keep the stained glass look as kids fill in each space on the egg.
If you are creating these stained glass eggs with toddlers and preschoolers, you can pre-make the glued lines and let them dry before kids paint.
Older children (school-aged) might enjoy tracing the egg lines with the glue themselves.
Once the templates have been traced with glue, let dry overnight.
Children can choose to use washable watercolors (easier with younger children) or Sharpie markers for older children (pastel and metallics are gorgeous).
Kids can freely paint these in and the result will be beautiful no matter what!
Once the entire egg has been painted or colored, let dry and cut out. Hang this stained glass craft in your window for some beautiful and simple DIY Easter decor!
