I say No - have your kids design simple stained glass patterns. My fifth
graders
are about to start a project of faux stained glass using plexiglass and black
glue.
They draw simple designs using flowers, animals, butterflies, sports motif
(very popular with boys) angels (very popular with girls) etc. They lay
their drawing under
their plexiglass sheet (free from auto glass places- scraps) and then apply
the
black glue to the sections they have drawn. We will then paint the dried
glue spaces
with thinned acrylic paint. Used to use colored tissue but it faded and
peeled off.
The children are so proud of these and many have been given as gifts - some
mailed
off to grandparents living in far flung states. Hope this encouragement
helps. Roberta
