Sunny day projects for kids to make

During the winter time is not much sun but this might brighten up your day!!

Bejeweled Jug Sun catchers

Materials: One 4 pint plastic milk bottle, Pair of scissors, Hole Puncher, Glue Stick, Acrylic Jewels, Sequins or glitter, Ribbon or thread for hanging

Cut out the large flat rectangular side of the milk bottle.
Draw on your heart shape and cut out.
Use the hole punch to cut a hole for threading.
Cover one side of the heart thickly with glue.
Stick on your jewels and set aside to dry.
Once fully dry thread with ribbon and hang in the window.

Sweet Sun Catchers

Materials:  poinsettia leaves, cranberries, orange and grapefruit slices, glitter, pie pan, ribbon, water

In pie pan place your items the way you desire and then add some glitter.
Carry it outside and set it down in a still place before adding the water.
Don't forget to add your string for hanging.  Add water and let Mother Nature do her job.  Leave overnight. After they are frozen you can bring them in and pour hot water over the backs of your pans until they come loose.

Share your ideas on this or anything here on the blog either here or e-mail me at stipple@verizon.net.  I look forward to hearing from you!
