The Easter craft was not planned at all but sometimes beautiful things happen on hard days. My daughter refused to nap on a day I needed to pack for a trip. I needed her to sleep but she had other plans. Instead of forcing her to lie down and sleep. Therefore, instead of getting frustrated I decided we’d play. And play we did. I had no plans on turning it into a craft but I am so glad we did because every time we pass the window where these Easter egg suncatchers are with my daughter she claps and points with pride.
- Gather your materials. So my plan was just to do an Easter sticky table so I grabbed some confetti and Easter grass, contact paper and painter’s tape.
- I popped the contact paper on the table sticky side up using painter’s tape to keep it on the table. Added the confetti and Easter grass to stick on. My son was mildly interested but she was in love.
- She poured and poured and asked for more.
- Picked it up and let it drop.
- All over the table and the floor.
- It was a blast. But to say it was messy would be an understatement. I confined the mess by sealing the confetti under the 2nd layer of contact paper.
- Then cut them into egg shapes. Aren’t they pretty??
- There were so many layers of confetti, the contact paper didn’t stick. So I used a little double stick tape to make sure that the paper stuck together. The double stick tape did the trick and I put them up in the window. Even in the dark gloomy rain, these Easter egg suncatchers brightened up our playroom!
She never did nap but wow did we have fun!
