This tissue paper rainbow suncatcher is so beautiful! With my help, my preschooler was able to make it and we are both so excited with how it turned out!
Even though it is still winter, it feels like it’s spring because this stunning rainbow suncatcher is hanging in our window. I can’t help but smile whenever I glance over and see it. It turned out better than I even thought it would!
Materials Needed to Make the Rainbow Suncatcher
Tissue paper – purple, blue, green, yellow, orange and red. You only need a small amount of each color.
Clear contact paper
1. I printed out this rainbow template to use as a guide.
2. Cut the tissue paper into squares that are about 1 inch.
3. Cut the clear contact paper so it is slightly bigger than the rainbow template.
4. Lay the contact paper sticky side up over top of the template.
How to Make the Tissue Paper Rainbow Suncatcher
Model how to crumple a tissue paper square and stick it to the contact paper. Then have your child join in. Make sure to explain that they need to try to stay in the lines and go all the way the around the rainbow.
Evan and I worked on this together. It definitely would have looked different if I just left him to his own devices. I do think a child who does crafts more often or one who is older would have no problem doing this alone. Regardless, we enjoyed working on it together and we were both excited with the final result!
It looks so beautiful when the sun shines through it!
