I recently shared a family play date we had when my nephews Blake and Logan. Besides enjoying some good old fashion fun with all our toys (aren’t the best toys the ones you don’t own and get to play with at someone else’s house?) and some yummy snacks provided by Happy Family, but I also made sure we’d have some crafty time when we made leaf sun catchers.
- Contact Paper
- Ripped up pieces of Tissue Paper
- Painter’s Tape
- Construction Paper
To prepare, I cut two of the same size pieces of contact paper per child. Peel away the adhesive cover to one piece and use painter’s tape to stick it to the wall, sticky side out. Save the matching piece for later. Next, cut out leaf outlines from construction paper and add to the sticky panels.
The kids took the tissue paper pieces and stuck them to the paper any which way they pleased. They started to make a game out of it, applying them as fast as they could to all the sticky parts.
Once they were thoroughly covered, we stuck the other piece of contact paper to the sheet to sandwich our tissue paper creations inside. With one rough cut and a little exposed area of contact paper later, we stuck our leaf sun catchers up on the sliding glass doors to let the sun shine through.
