Sourced from The Best Ideas for Kids blog. This site has some amazing ideas and I just loved this one and had to share.
The materials needed for this suncatcher craft are quite easy to find. Just head to your local Walmart, craft store, or Dollar Tree to find everything. Here’s what you will need:
See, I told you the materials were pretty simple! They are small enough and simple enough to bring to your outdoor or indoor meetings. Some of the parents may even have the supplies needed.
Making this craft is easy! Just follow these simple steps.
You may notice that the contact paper doesn’t stick together because the tissue paper is keeping the sticky parts from touching. It will still hang fine on the window this way, or you can tape the edges closed. An alternate idea is to place another layer of contact paper over the craft and cut it out a little thicker than the original tracing to let some contact paper touch and cling.
Once the girls are finished, let them give their crafts to their moms for Mother’s Day. They are easy to tuck inside a card or to write a message on with a Sharpie marker.
The moms will love getting this sweet gift. Who doesn’t love a handprint craft from their child? It will bring mothers so much joy as they look at them hanging in the window this spring.
These Mother’s Day Crafts aren’t only good for May! They make great gifts and crafts for any time of year. Use green and red tissue paper for a holiday craft, or a loved one’s favorite colors for their birthday. The possibilities are endless and making this craft a thoughtful gift and card for anyone is a great idea.
Have fun crafting with your troop!
