Spring Preschool Craft: Confetti Suncatchers

These Confetti Suncatchers are perfect for a spring craft, a Mother's Day gift, or just a fun project to brighten up a corner!  

We needed a craft for the pile of confetti we collected at Easter time, and these little suncatchers were the perfect solution!  They are bright and colorful and the kids love them!  And bonus:  they are using recycled materials!  Earth Day is tomorrow, after all!

Simple Supplies:
  • contact paper
  • confetti**
  • black construction paper
  • tape
  • string

Easy How-To:

1.  In advance, cut the contact paper into egg (or flower or bee or any other spring) shapes.

2.  Invite your children to place the confetti** on the sticky part of the contact paper.  When they've arranged it as they'd like, let them stick it to the construction paper.  You may need to tape around the edges, depending on how they've arranged their confetti.

3.  Trim the black paper as desired and punch a hole in it.

4.  Lace a string or ribbon through the hole and tie a knot.

5.  Ta da!  All done!!

Like I said, the kids love them!  I had to insist that they let me hang them up during nap time; otherwise, they probably would have slept with them!  

Isn't spring time fun?!!  Have you made anything bright and colorful lately?  I'd love to know!  Feel free to share a link in the comments or share your projects on our Preschool Powol Packets Facebook page!!

**Confetti...wait, you don't have a pile of confetti sitting around?  What?!!  :)  No worries...preschoolers love to pop little circles out of brightly colored paper with a hole punch.  Just give them a minute...

I may share at any of these parties!
