The pre-kindergarten students began class learning about stained glass windows in churches. We talked about how they are not only beautiful to look at, but they also provided a visual aid for praying and added extra light in dark churches before they had electricity. The students could pick any design for their window: Jesus, angels, saints, Mary, crosses, etc. Once they had their design drawn, they used squares of “bleeding” tissue paper to give their work the look of colored stained glass. When painted with water, the tissue paper transfers color onto the white paper it is stuck to. After it dries, the tissue is removed and the colorful square pattern remains.
