Earth Day is April 22, 2016. Always looking for fun things to do with my 3-year-old, I came across this fun and easy pin from Learning and Exploring Through Play. An Earth Day suncatcher!
Blue and green tissue paper, cut into small pieces
Laminate paper, I used the self stick
I cut up my tissue paper, just a couple of lengths, and then into small squares. It doesn’t have to be perfect. You could even do a mix of cuts like triangles.
Then, I peeled the backing off of one side of the self stick laminate and put it flat on the table, sticky side up.
Let the fun begin! My son giggled endlessly as his fingers stuck to the laminate as he added the shreds of paper. We just added paper pieces until almost all of the laminate was covered.
Then I peeled the backing off of a second sheet and covered the tissue paper. Once we had our two pieces together with the tissue paper sandwiched in between We cut our circles. They turned out a little egg-shaped as I let my son help, but cute none the less.
They don’t look like much here, but wait until you hold them up to the window!
I just used a small piece of tape to stick them to the window. I like the idea of using some string so they would hang and have a bit of sway. I still have a few days to get that done!
Will you try this? Do you have a favorite Earth Day craft?
so pretty, I love using tissue paper, ever tried covering a glass for a candle holder?
