Rainbow Heart Suncatchers
Our kitchen contains a lovely window that overlooks the backyard. It’s perfect for bird watching, checking weather, and displaying homemade suncatchers. Vibrant Rainbow Heart Suncatchers are easy for kids to create in 3 simple steps. Don’t they glow beautifully in the afternoon sunlight?
To make this craft you will need:
After gathering supplies, invite your child to cut small squares of tissue paper. While they are working on that task, use scissors to cut a clear sheet protector along the seams to create 2 sheets of plastic. Spread Mod Podge over the sheet of plastic. Using the brush, show your child how to découpage the tissue paper squares directly onto the plastic. Allow the plastic sheet to dry completely.
Gently bend the plastic sheet protector in half and cut out a heart. The découpaged tissue paper will peel right off the plastic!
I attached the suncatchers to our window with double sided tape. They make me smile, and I hope they will make you smile too!
