This idea for crafty fun is brought to you by Melissa & Doug, written by our Blog Ambassador Valerie Deneen.

Enjoy crafting with your kids!

Do you enjoy scratch art? Do you love the look of stained glass? Do you have an overwhelming urge to combine the two and make unique works of colorful art?? If so, this is the craft for you!


Recently, we were given the new Scratch Art Light Box by Melissa & Doug to review, and it was a big hit around here! This portable light table is perfect for Stained Glass Scratch Art Sheets. It is designed for ages 5-10.


For a special Autumn project, invite your child to trace a leaf onto the stained glass scratch art paper. My daughter thought this was so much fun!


Once the leaf shape is drawn, your child may want to add the veins of the leaf or other details to their artwork. So beautiful!

We love to display these pretty works of art in a sunny window!
