After a long (long, loooooooong) rainy spring, the sun has finally arrived where I live and I’m basking in it! With the kids home for summer (basking as well, but still bored) I’m lining up some sun friendly crafts for us to work on and at the top of my list. Here are some of the coolest I’ve spotted!
Gelatin Sun Catchers – Dilly Dali Art
This is SUCH a neat craft! The pieces of this sun catcher, all bright and sparkly, are made of gelatin! SO COOL! I cant wait to try this one out with the kids, I can see lots of possibilities for this gelatin plastic material!
Spiral Suncatchers – NorthShore Days
My daughter will love making these. She’s a total bead hound and turning her prettiest beads into something that will sparkle in the sun would be a double win in her eyes. They are so nice and cheery!
DIY Glass Marbles in Your Fence – Garden Drama
Although I don’t have a fence at my house, this project might just inspire me to build one just so I can do it! I can’t get over how pretty, and how simple it is! I’d like to put this technique to use in a fairy garden or playground so the colorful light flickers around and makes the space look magical!
