Winter is lasting f.o.r.e.v.e.r ....we need to brighten it up a bit in here! Today we made sun catchers. Another super easy project that kept little hands busy for a while and gave us the little bit of color that is needed when looking out a window.
What you need:
construction paper (any color)
clear contact paper
tissue paper (assorted colors)
yarn or string
Cut any shape you prefer out of a piece of construction paper. Adhere the construction paper to the sticky side of a piece of clear contact paper, making sure the contact paper is larger than the construction paper.
Cut the tissue paper into small pieces-- any shape or size. I found that pieces that were about one inch or so were perfect.
Randomly place the pieces of tissue paper on the contact paper (sticky side up), covering the inside of the shape completely.
Use another sheet of contact paper to cover your tissue papered shape (tissue papered? Is that a word?), sticky side to sticky side.
Cut around the outside of the construction paper to clean up the edges of overlapped contact paper.
Use a paper punch to make a hole in the top and hang with yarn or string.
