As part of our Summer Solstice celebrations last week Reece and I spent one afternoon making a couple of sun catchers for the kitchen window. It was a fun and easy craft I know we will do again.
The night before I created a sun stencil and then cut out four suns. I also prepared some contact paper, cutting four circles the same size as the circle in the center of our suns and cut up some tissue paper.
It was such a lovely day when we did this craft that we decided to do it outside on the back deck...fun!
I removed one side of paper from the contact paper and Reece got to creating his “stained glass” center. He really enjoyed this, even more so when he lifted it up and saw the finished circle.
I then handed over the glue and a paint brush and he got busy painting on the glue while I added the other circle of contact paper to the opposite side of the “stained glass”.
The “stained glass” went in the center, and the second sun on top, a little bit of pressure and voila we had our sun catchers.
To say he was impressed would be an understatement, he loved it!
Don’t they look lovely hanging in our kitchen window?
