Yesterday I did a super brave thing, I got the glitter out. I know that if you write about kids crafts then somehow you are expected to automatically love glitter but this mama has spent too long cleaning the stuff up to be a big fan of it! We did find a way to keep the mess under control though and I think our winter tree suncatchers worked out really well!
We love making Halloween suncatchers. My son made this cool stained glass pumpkin suncatcher last year and this week I’ve been sharing some more suncatcher ideas over on the Edplace blog. There’s only one problem with this though. The toddler, she really, really does not like to be left out. It gets loud. So I’m thinking that maybe as we’re still reading Fox’s Socks she might not quite be ready for Mary Shelly’s novel, but this fun stained glass frankenstein suncatcher was a good way to introduce mixing colours and it was a whole heap of fun too.
