Stained Glass Windows – Painting with colored school glue!

Final stained glass windowAt FunLab, we love washable school glue. In this post, we used it to create a Stained Glass Window. We also used another one of our favorites – crafts sticks. This is a great project for an art class at school. Teachers try it out and let us know how it went.

You will need:
Liquid Watercolors
School Glue
Craft Sticks
Acrylic Paint
Ribbon

Let’s get started:
Step 1: Paint 8 craft sticks green.
