Project #94: Halloween Suncatchers


Halloween Suncatchers by Jennifer Kirk from Ambrosia Creative

With Halloween coming up in just a few weeks, the boys and I have wasted no time in starting some projects. Wanting to do make some decor more colorful than the standard black and orange, I turned to the Mexican holiday, Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, for inspiration.

What you'll need:
*Permanent Sharpie markers (for really small kids, you'll want to don aprons or 'work' clothes, or reserve this project for older kids!)
*Flat pieces of clear plastic cut out from food packaging/lids/containers
*Scissors, tape, and a few sheets of white paper


Step 1:
With black permanent marker, illustrate Halloween image onto a piece of plastic. ( Download Halloween Suncatchers)
Step 2:
Flipping the plastic around so that the marker side is facing down, tape plastic to a sheet of paper to protect your surface.
Step 3:
Color in the design.
Step 4:
Remove design from paper and cut out. Tape to window or glass doors so the sunlight can filter through.

My 6-year-old really loved this easy, colorful project and we both can't wait to add more characters to our Halloween crew!

    I love that these are not your average Pumpkin decorations. These can easily be used to celebrate Dia de lo Muertos as well. Good job.
