Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
first you will need to gather these things
1.thin cardboard (Such as what cereal boxes are made from .)
2.a drawing of sort to make your sun catcher of
3.white school glue
4.a transparent paper protector
5. push pins
6.an old thick magazine or you can use a cork board
7. a sharp knife to cut your design out
make a drawing on the cardboard that you can cut out
such as this one I have shown
cut out what you have drawn with your knife very carefully
you can see what mine looks like cut out here
After you have cut all of your design out .
Take your tacks and tack around everything you have cut out ,inside and out on top of the transparent paper protector and magazine or cork board
the next and near final part is here. Pour your white glue into the parts you cut out of your design and wait for it to dry
When the glue is dry with no plastic exposed carefully undo the thumb tacks and pull your dried sun catcher off the protector . If you notice spots where there is no glue before you pull it off just put some more glue there and and let dry . I had to do this before i was done i did not tack it enough was the problem
You can use watercolors to give them color, but i did not.
I hope you enjoyed this instructable
