Some kids get nervous about the “permanence” of decorating glass. A good way to practice beforehand is with our coloring pages.
We’ve picked out some of the best window art for kids, with a focus on older kids and tweens. These are more complicated designs than kits for preschoolers and little kids.
One of the benefits of buying a kit means you have all of the supplies right away. If you prefer to DIY, you can make window clings using Mod Podge.
Do these kits use real glass?
Because these kits are meant for kids and beginner crafters, none of them have real glass, the tools used with stained glass art, or are dangerous. These window crafts use plastic, stickers, markers, and other simple craft supplies. A few include paint, but all are meant to not make a mess and for older kids to be able to do alone.
If you’d like to try actual stained glass with your child, we recommend you search for a beginner class in your area. There are some expensive tools and difficult skills needed, so it’s best to try it out before you invest in the hobby.
