Stained Glass Window

Here is a fun coloring craft to keep your little ones busy this holiday season. Print out a manger or Christmas scene on white printer paper.

Give your children some bright crayons to color their pictures (and make sure they only color on the right side of the paper). Once the picture is all colored, turn it over and place it face down on a paper towel or two. Now pour some baby oil on a cotton ball or wadded-up paper towel and rub over the backside of the picture until evenly saturated (picture 1). Now you have a beautiful Christmas stained glass window picture. Set oiled paper between a layer of paper and paper towels, and set aside for a few days until the oil is all absorbed. Voila! Now hang on a window or the fridge to display (picture 2).
