Fall Sun Catchers

We LOVE sun catchers!! They are super easy and the kids can get really creative with their creations. This is also an activity that I have on deck when we have a babysitter. I always have the materials for sun catchers on hand so all I do is set them out and the kids know how to do the rest!

What You Need:

  • Contact paper
  • paper plates
  • scissors
  • hole punch
  • yarn or string or pipe cleaners
  • crayons, paint, stickers or markers (anything to decorate the rim of the plate)
What To Do:
  1. Collect materials to stick on the contact paper (this time we collected leaves and flowers) 
  2. Cut the center out of the plate, leaving the rim.
  3. Trace a circle on the contact paper using the center of the plate.
  4. cut out the circle about a 1/2 inch wider than the traced line.
  5. stick the contact paper circle in the center of the plate.
  6. stick collected materials on the contact paper.
  7. punch a hole in the top of the paper plate rim.
  8. hang your sun catcher in a sunny window using the yarn, string or pipe cleaners.
