We made these beautiful butterfly sun catchers to catch the summer rays. My 4 year old loved meticulously gluing the tissue paper shapes onto the card stock outline. She's into anything crafty, especially if she can do it herself!
To make homemade butterfly sun catchers, you just need scissors, card stock, glue, and different colored tissue paper. You can use our printable butterfly templates to print out butterfly shapes on card stock to create your pattern, and then use kids scissors to cut out the butterfly shapes on shimmery or colored card stock.
These butterfly tissue paper sun catchers are vibrantly colorful accents for decorating your windows this fall! And your kids will love that you're displaying something they made themselves! I love looking at my window and seeing these colorful butterfly sun catchers. We even sent one as a gift for grandma!
What do you enjoy doing with your kids? Toddlers, preschoolers, and big kids can all benefit from the crafty ingenuity required to do creative kids' projects. My daughter loves baking, gluing, coloring, and learning about color! We started her at young age with colorful pom poms. They were all over our house, but she learned her colors and practiced her fine motor skills. I'm excited to do crafts with all my kids and learn their favorite activities and talents as they get older.
