Stain Glass Teaching Guide


As you participate in this Stain Glass activity with your family, use this teaching script to help guide your family through lots of fun, wonderful memory making, and thoughtful discussion on the celebration of Easter. Lead your family through a time of celebration and learning, guiding them with thoughtful questions, scripture reading, and prayer. Enjoy!


Gathering the Family

Everyone is included in this activity. Say, “Hey everyone, let’s gather together and make a stain glass picture on our window”


Beginning Question: Why do we celebrate Easter? (allow time for all answers). Say, “Those are all great answers! As we go through this activity, we will be spending time to really understand why we celebrate Easter.”


Taping the Cross

After taping the door frame, have your kids help tape the cross together. Ask your family questions like:

  • What is the cross?

  • What happened on the cross?

  • Who was on the cross?


Allow time for answers. Take out your Bible and turn to Luke 23 and read verses 26-27, 32-34, and 44-49. (You can pre mark your Bible to prepare for this).

You can also read these verses below to give more explanation.


1 Peter 2:24 “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.”


Romans 5:8 "But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”


Say, “Jesus dying on the cross was a very sad day indeed. He was hurt, sinned against, beaten, in much pain, and even mocked. There were people who were cursing at Him. However, as terrible and awful this moment was, Jesus’ mission from God was to come to earth to die on the cross for our sins, human sins, so that won’t die, but so we can live with Jesus forever!”

Taping the Shapes

As you tape on the shapes around the cross, lead your family in a discussion about sin. Ask questions like:

  • What is sin?

  • Why is sin bad?

  • Who sins?

  • How do we stop sinning?

  • Who helps us not to sin?

  • Did Jesus ever sin?


You can tie this conversation into the previous one about Jesus death on a cross in order to reemphasize why Jesus died on the cross.

You can also read these verses below to give more explanation.


1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”


Titus 2:11-12 “For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age.”


Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”


Say, “Sin is anything that we do that disobeys God and what He says in the Bible. We sin every day and that makes God sad and angry. Jesus took our sins away on the cross and He helps us not to sin. We can strive every day to obey God and not sin. However, when we sin, we can ask God for forgiveness and keep doing our best to not sin again.”




Use your fingers or find a paintbrush. Whichever one you do, have fun!

Awesome! Great Job! Take pictures, post them on social media, on our facebook page, and save them in your picture folders.


Open your bible and read John 3:16, “For God so loved that world, He gave His only son, that whoever believes in Him, will not perish but have everlasting life.”


Say, “Jesus dying on the cross was a sad day and our sin is disobedience against God, however we remember the cross during Easter in order to remember that Jesus died on the cross to wash away our sins, saving us so that we can live with Him forever!”
