Are the Kid’s Driving You Nuts Yet? {Fun Summer Kids Craft!}

Howdy friends! Today I have a fun craft that will keep the kids from saying “Mom, I’m bored!” at least for an hour or so LOL!

Watch the video to see how to make these fun sun catchers!

Supplies:
Black cardstock or construction paper
Bright colored tissue paper
White Glue
Waxed Paper (from the kitchen)
Scissors

Directions:
1. Cut tissue paper into small squares. Cut a shape out of black paper (fish, seashells, sea horses, octopuses, dolphins, crabs, and mermaids are all fun ideas but you can cut any shape you wish)

2. Apply glue to the black paper around he cut-out and place a sheet of waxed paper on top.

3. Apply a layer of glue to the waxed paper on top of the cutout and cover with tissue paper squares. Seal the paper with another coat of glue and let dry.

4. Cut around the window shape, if desired, leaving a1/2″ border or leave it as is and hang in a sunny window and enjoy the beautiful colors!

Thanks to Papermart for sponsoring this video and thank you for spending some time with me today! Til next time happy crafting!
