A great art project for the classroom or at home. Almost any age will be able to make these – kiddos AND adults! Kiddos will easily be able to create these suncatchers with the materials included – hang in front of your window when done for a beautiful effect! Great project for younger kids who can do this by themselves and make something very pretty to put in window. Sun catcher craft kits are a perfect gift for this year!!
