How to create Fall Suncatchers

Check out the whole process in this quick video or see step by step directions below.

 

 Start by punching holes out of your red and green paper.  You can use different sizes, but a standard hole punch will also work.A simple apple themed fine motor activity combines construction paper and contact paper to create a fun apple craft.

You will cut the apple out of the red circle and the stem out of the green circle. This gives your child somewhere to aim with their dots.

Peel back the paper and tape, sticky side up, on your workspace. Now fill the circles with dots. Have them match the dots with the correct colored circle. Going over the edges is fine.A simple apple themed fine motor activity combines construction paper and contact paper to create a fun apple craft.

When they are finished take the second piece of contact paper, peel off the back, and place it sticky side down on your circles.
If they are old enough they can cut out the red circles. Add a small indent in the top of the circle to create an apple.
