It can get really hot in the summer here (like up to 120 degrees hot), so on those days, we tend to stay inside and do crafts. This paper plate suncatcher craft is the perfect way to incorporate the summer sun into our day without actually having to go out in the sun, by hanging it in the window to see the sun shine through the colors.

Step 1: Cut the middle out of a paper plate.

Step 2: Put contact paper on one side of the paper plate, folding it over the edge of the paper plate to secure it. One side of the hole in the paper plate will be sticky.

Step 3: Have your child place ripped tissue paper on the sticky side of the contact paper (you or your child can rip the tissue paper).

Step 4: Use another sheet of contact paper to sandwich the tissue paper between the two sheets of contact paper, so that no sticky-ness is exposed.

Step 5: Punch a hole in the paper plate and put string through it to hang it.

*Remember the process of making the craft is more important than the outcome. Let your kids have free reign on how much or little tissue paper they want to put on. Some kids might cover the entire thing in tissue paper and some might only want to put a few pieces on. Either way, they are learning and developing through the process, and they will be so proud to see their work hanging in your window 🙂

I hope you and your kids enjoy this craft!

XO, Kacie
