This first sun catcher can be made with construction paper, plastic wrap, tissue/gift paper, and diluted glue.
Lay down a piece of plastic wrap. Provide the children with construction paper stencils, such as the rocket ship shown below, or allow them to create their own. They can then coat the tissue paper in the glue solution, and place it over the top of the stencil. After it has dried remove the plastic wrap and tape to a window.
The second version we have uses pony beads. Have children create a design on a cookie sheet or in a muffin pan. Have an ADULT put them in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes or until melted. Let cool then add string!
