Let the sunlight shine splashes of color onto your classroom walls…with these fun-to-make suncatchers!
This activity is appropriate for:
kindergarten - 3rd grade / 5 - 8 years
You will need:
- Reproduce several copies of the Sunglasses Suncatcher template and cut them out. Have students trace the sunglasses onto black construction paper.
- Instruct students to cut out the sunglasses. Make sure they cut out the inside pieces, too! (Younger students may need help with this step.)
- Cut a sheet of clear adhesive plastic that’s slightly larger than the sunglasses, and tape it sticky-side-up to each student’s desk.
- Provide students with tissue paper squares in a variety of colors, and invite them to cover the surface of the adhesive plastic with the squares. Encourage them to overlap the squares so that all clear parts are covered.
- Have students place a second sheet of clear adhesive plastic (with the sticky side down) on top of the first sheet.
- Prompt students to glue their sunglasses to the adhesive plastic. After the glue dries, have them trim around the edge of the sunglasses to remove any excess plastic.
- Tape the completed suncatchers to your classroom windows, or punch a hole in the top and hang them with string!
