Valentine’s Day Sun Catcher
- Paper Plate
- Colored Tissue Paper (Red or pink is perfect for Valentine’s Day.)
- Valentine’s Day stickers
- Glitter glue, markers, or other decorating materials (optional)
Cut out the inner circle of the paper plate and glue a piece of colored tissue paper to the back.
Don’t worry about any excess hanging off the sides, it can be trimmed once the project is dry.
Have your child decorate the tissue paper that is showing through the plate’s hole with different colored tissue paper hearts. (You may wish to cut these out ahead of time.)
Handy tip: Squeeze just a bit of glue into a container and have your toddler use a paintbrush to dab on the glue.
Once the inside is decorated, have your child use stickers, markers, glitter glue, or more tissue paper hearts to decorate the rim of the paper plate.
Let the suncatcher dry completely.
Then punch a hole at the top and tie a ribbon through the hole for hanging.
Trim off any excess tissue paper and hang it in a sunny window to enjoy.
Your toddler or preschooler will have fun creating their own Valentine’s Day suncatcher. They may even want to make one for a grandparent or teacher!
