Do you have markers? Great. Do you have coffee filters or tissue paper? Awesome! Do you have tape? Wonderful!
You’re ready to make rainbow suncatchers!
Seriously, I think we’re going to start making suncatchers in every unit, because they’re just so easy to put together, and they bring so much joy!
This activity allows my son to work on his fine motor skills when he’s coloring and taping them on the window. We get to work on his language by discussing which ones allow the most light through. And we explore art together by drawing!

We colored on tissue paper, coffee filters, and copy paper, that way we could experiment with which ones allow the most light through. You’ll have to remind your little ones to be gentle when doing this, as it’s easy to rip!
