I really like suncatchers and they are easy to make even for the smallest hands. Here is what we made for the Grandmas this year.
What you need:
- contact paper (self-adhesive cover for school books)
- tissue paper (“selyempapír”) of any colours
- other decorative elements that are as flat as a sheet of paper (We used hearts and flowers)
- coloured paper
How to do it:
First, I cut a heart frame out of yellow coloured paper ( I used a template for the heart but you can try to draw a symmetrical heart with this technique). I also cut a piece of contact paper peeled of its back and stuck the heart frame on the sticky side. After that I cut along the outer line of the heart.
I prepared a lot of decorative elements on a tray for the girls to choose from. It could have been more varied but time was scarce.
They decorated their hearts as they wanted to. Even my two-year old could make a really nice present for the Grandmas.
Try it next mother’s day and let me see your decorated hearts in the comment section or on Nonnative Mommy’s facebook page . (This idea is also a great Valentine’s Day present by the way 🙂 )
