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.

I used:

  • 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.

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 🙂
