You and children of any age can make these simple suncatchers with just some mini paper plates, tissue paper, clear contact paper, scissors, a hole punch and yarn.
- mini paper plates
- tissue paper
- clear contact paper
- single hole punch and yarn
- glue, and glitter, etc.
- Give each child a mini paper plate.
- Cut out the center circle on the paper plate with the scissors. (If the children have safety scissors, the centers of the plates can be cut out before step 1.)
- Give each child several sheets of tissue paper. Have them cut the tissue into small pieces.
- Cover the hole in the center of the paper plate with contact paper.
- Cover the sticky surface of the contact paper with tissue paper pieces.
- Cover the tissue paper with a second piece of contact paper.
- Make a hole with the hole punch in the paper plate.
- Tie the yarn through the hole so the suncatcher can be hung on a window.
- Optional: Decorate the white plate around the edge with crayons, markers, glue and glitter or stickers.
A very simple craft for even the youngest child.
