Children’s Grab & Go Kit: Stained Glass Jars

Our 2020 Summer Reading craft programs will be via grab & go craft kits.

When you register for the craft, a bag with your name on it will be left on the curbside pick up table. You can pick up your grab & go kit Monday – Wednesday, between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.

(To assure that all families get a chance to participate in our program, there will be a limit of 2 kits per family.)


We are making Stained Glass Jars, this week!


If you don’t get a chance to sign up for our program, try it at home!

Materials included:

             – Tissue Paper (cut in squares)

             – Modge Podge or Elmer’s Glue

             – Mason Jar

             – Paintbrush


  1. Using the paintbrush, paint modge podge onto glass then cover with tissue paper. Feel free to overlap some spots to create an artistic overlap effect!

                         (Be sure not to use  too much midge podge to avoid soggy tissue paper and tearing)

  1. Once the tissue paper is dried, paint over with modge podge again to seal it.

                        (If you run out of modge podge, elmer’s glue works great!)
