Stained Glass Easter Weaving

You’ll have to ignore the snow in the background of all these pictures. Winter finally decided to come to Utah, just as I decided I didn’t have to wait any longer to make Easter crafts. 

I love Easter, with all the pretty springtime colors and the cute little bunnies and chicks, and I basically wait all year for it to be time to get going on the Easter posts. 

So here’s your first one – this is a simple little craft that’s easy enough to do with small children. It was a little too hard for my 3 year old, but his buddy who was 4 had a great time with it, so there you go. This is also an easy activity to set up for large groups. Kids who can cut can do the whole project by themselves, but if you’ve got a scissors-challenged kiddo (like my little guy and his friend), these are easy to mass produce, especially if you have access to a paper cutter.

The templates for the four designs are linked in the materials section. If you’re interested in skills building, this project opens the door for weaving (obvi), patterns, cutting, gluing, and tracing. 

Easter Stained Glass, Step-by-Step

Materials

colored computer paper (NOT construction paper or cardstock)

printable Easter friends templates (sheep and egg, bunny and chick)

scissors

glue stick

Directions

Start by printing off the Easter friends template, cutting them out, and then using them to trace a friend on the colored computer paper. I traced a yellow chick.

Cut out your friend, then fold them in half and make 4-6 cuts across.

Unfold the base, then cut several 1/4″ strips of contrasting color paper. Weave these through the cuts on the base.

To finish, glue the top and bottom of each strip to the base, then cut it off.

Getting the “stained glass” look is as easy as hanging them in the window. The computer paper is thin enough to let the light through, and you get a beautiful effect!
