Suncatcher craft for kids with tissue paper (free template available)

Simple suncatcher crafts for kids

Suncatchers add colorful brightness to any room. They are a visual treat to look at. Especially, if it’s made by kids, the display of their creativity helps them admire their own skills.

Here, we have an easy suncatcher craft idea for kids using tissue paper. You can download the template to make the suncatcher from our resource library.

Here we have used transparent paper to make the suncatcher. Since it’s non-adhesive, we used glue to stick them together. 

If you want you can use self-adhesive clear contact paper too. In that case, you don’t need to use glue, but all the other steps remain the same. 

Before moving onto the craft, we would appreciate it very much if you will check out our Youtube channel and subscribe to it. We upload new easy craft tutorials every week there. Thank you!

1e. Color the flower.

1f. Now place the transparent sheet directly under the flower template.

1g. Along the circular center of the flower, trace a circle to the sheet placed beneath. Use an erasable marker for this as we would need to erase the circular outline later.

1h. Trace one more such circle, and cut both circles out. When you cut the circles out, remember to leave a little space outside the outline, as we need some space to stick it to the center of the flower template. So, make sure you don’t cut too close to the outline.
