Suncatchers

ages 3-6


Supplies

Clear contact paper, scraps or pieces of colored tissue paper, hole puncher, piece of yarn

Activity Detail

1. Cut some colored tissue paper into small squares (or other shapes), about 1 x 1 inch. 2. Cut two squares (size is up to you) of clear contact paper. 3. Place one square of contact paper sticky side up on a table. 4. Allow your child to drop, place, pat or throw the tissue paper onto the contact paper. 5. Take the second piece of contact paper and press evenly to the decorated piece. 6. If desired, cut the sealed pieces into any desired shape. 7. Punch a hole in the edge and thread a piece of yarn or curl ribbon through for hanging. 8. Hang in a sunny window. Additional Ideas: 1. You can also use confetti or other decorative papers besides tissue paper. 2. Cut the paper into shapes for the holidays. For instance, one year I cut red, pink and white tissue paper into hearts for Valentine's Day, and then cut the entire suncatcher into a large heart shape. 3. To keep the contact paper from sliding around or sticking to toddler fingers, use a few small pieces of double sided tape in the corners to affix to the table while your child works. Remove these when the project is done. 4. For added decoration, you can fold some colored tape around the edges.
