Valentine Sun Catchers

These Valentine sun catchers can be hung in the window or on a wall.This craft can be done with children ages toddler and up.

What you need:
Card stock
Contact Paper
Scissors
Decorating materials (glitters, sequins, cut up tissue paper or regular colored paper in different shapes, etc).

 

Start by cutting a heart out of your contact paper (we saved the first heart and used it as a template for the other sun catchers). Cut a piece of contact paper slightly larger than the piece of cardstock paper and stick on one side.

Now for the fun part! Give your child some materials to decorate the sun catcher with. We had glitter and sequins on hand. We also cut some colored paper into squares and triangles to decorate with. We emptied the hole punch and used the colored dots too. It looks better if the child does not completely cover the whole heart so some sunlight will shine through it.

When finished decorating, cut another piece of contact paper slightly larger than the piece of cardstock paper and stick on the other side. Trim the edges.
Hang with tape or string (using a hole punch) on a window.

This craft can be done for any holiday – you can change the shape you cut out of the cardstock and you can change the decorating materials too.
