Once I was looking for an exciting way to introduce the shape of a square to my girl. The suncatcher project was also on my list. And both ideas went perfectly together. We revised the circle and heart shapes, and some colors as well.
- 1 circle plate
- parchment paper
- blue construction paper
- pink and colored tissue paper
- scissors, white glue
I cut the center of the paper plate out, glued parchment paper to the back and cut off the extra edges. Then I cut a square frame out of the construction paper and also made glued parchment paper to one of the sides. As both shapes dried, I drew a heart with glue over the plate and some random lines over the square. Alya had a blast tearing, crumbling and sticking the tissue paper over the glue.
After we finished both projects, the shapes took a nice sunny spot over our balcony door. We’ve done this activity few weeks ago and I still don’t feel like taking them off 🙂
