Age: Three and up
Time: An hour or more
Type of Activity: Arts and crafts

It's time to let the sun shine in! These stained glass sun-catchers will turn any room in your house into a kaleidoscope of color.

Materials needed:
· Tupperware covers or clear drink lids
· Clear mosaic tiles in assorted shapes and colors (these can be bought at any craft store). You can also use colored tissue paper that has been cut into shapes.
· Ribbon
· Clear glue
· Scissors
· Hole puncher

What to do:

Step One: Punch a hole at the top of the lid.

Step Two: Set out the supplies, and let your child create a design with the mosaics (or tissue paper cut-outs) on the lid.

Step Three: Glue the mosaics to the lid. Allow them to dry on completely.

Step Four: Cut a piece of ribbon, and string it through the hole. You can help her by making a nice bow at the top.

Step Five: Find a sunny spot to hang your project so it can catch some rays!
