As we gear up for spring, (and that extra hour of sunshine!) the kids and I did this great craft project I have to share with you! It’s cheap, easy, and makes a great gift to brighten someone’s day. We made sun catchers.
What you need:
• Contact paper
• Tissue Paper
• Hole Punch
• Small suction cup with hook
Simply trace a circle onto contact paper with a little hump on the top. It will look similar to a Christmas ornament.
Cut out 2 of them for each sun catcher.
Cut out several small squares of multi colored tissue paper.
Peel the backing off the contact paper. This takes a bit of patience…
Have the kids place their tissue paper squares all over the sticky side of the contact paper. My 13 month old did this no problem and loved it!
When it’s full, place the matching contact paper circle on top. Line it up best you can, but it doesn’t have to be perfect at all.
Trim around the edges. This will catch the tissue paper hanging off the edges and is also an easy way to even out the circles.
Punch a hole in the center of the hump part at the top.
String a short thin ribbon through the hole and tie it in a loop.
Hang on a window with a suction cup that has a hook. They sell 10-12 packs at Dollar Tree.
These make great gifts to brighten someone’s day!
Enjoy the sunshine!!
