Make it Monday: Sun Catchers

This one's for the kids!

This is a messy and fun craft for toddlers.

What you’ll need:

Construction Paper
Saran Wrap
Finger paints
Glue – I used Mod Podge
Fishing line
Suction cups


Fold and cut the frame. Fold the construction paper in half and cut out your desired shape. Fold it in half again to cut out the opening in the middle. You should end up with two identical windows joined in the middle by a fold.

Assemble the open frame. Tape the frame to your work surface. Spread a thin layer of glue on the lower half of the frame and lay a sheet of saran wrap over top. Try to keep it taut so there are no wrinkles. Tape the saran wrap to the work surface so it doesn’t move around.

Paint. The station is set up; let your little one go wild with finger paints.

Finish the frame. Lay a second sheet of saran overtop of the paint. Spread a thin layer of glue on the top half of the frame and fold over top enclosing the saran wrap. Let the glue dry and trim the excess saran wrap.

Display. Hang the sun catchers in a bright window using suction cups and fishing line. 

 Happy Monday!
