Tips for creating suncatchers for kids
- Suncatchers are great for any time of year. If you like a style, but the theme is about out of season, switch up the shape!
- Save time by cutting the small pieces before the crafting time starts. Grab a good hole punch and start prepping!
- Or, if you’re trying to build fine motor skills, have your kids cut the pieces out and create the suncatcher in two different sessions. This helps to prevent your kids from getting bored with the activity.
- If you’re crafting with a lot of kids, keep the small pieces in bowls along the center of the table. You can decide if you want the bowls to be divided by color, shape, or all mixed up.
