These painted heart suncatchers always brighten up our windows as we wrap up Winter and wait for Spring! My kids love to make them and they always turn out different every time. They are perfect for Valentine’s Day or as a way to discuss kindness, making February a wonderful month for heart crafting!
How to Make Painted Heart Suncatchers
What you need:
-hot glue gun
– tempera paint and paintbrushes
What to do:
Create a heart shaped design out of hot glue on wax paper, making various places for the kids to paint.
Once dry, prepare the suncatcher paint by mixing tempera paint and white glue.
Allow the kids to paint all of the spaces of the hearts with the paint mixture.
Once dry, cut the shape out and hang on the windows!
We made a few different designs, and there is really no messing these up!
My 3 year old was able to do this independently with the hot glue design acting as a really nice guide.
They look so beautiful up on our window with the sun shining through!
My kids have decided to hand them out to their teachers to brighten up their classrooms.
Don’t they look lovely?!
