When I first saw these  sun catchers on The Artful Parent’s blog, I just knew these would look fantastic hanging in our windows.  I wanted to make these with my preschool kiddos as well.

This project proved to be very simple and enjoyable for the children.

To make these you will need: a paper plate or a circle shape, leaves, markers to decorate the ring and contact paper to seal in the leaves.
One thing I did not think of is the fact that the leaves continue to change color due to the direct sunlight.  This has been a great science lesson as well!
