Every year I find a craft for the girls to make to hand out as Christmas gifts. This year the girls are making snow globe sun catchers. I bought the glitter paint pens and sun catchers through Oriental Trading. It cost about $20 and I have 24 sun catchers for them to paint. I found the suction cup hooks at the dollar store and only needed to buy 2 packs. So for $22 the girls are able to make 24 sun catchers. Although, with the amount of paint they are going through, I might have to buy more.
I read somewhere that I can make the paint myself with clear elmer's glue and food coloring so I might try that.
I'm letting them each make 3 at a time per painting session so they don't get bored and just rush through them. So far they are having a great time.
Closer to Christmas, I'll let them decide who they are giving them to and help wrap them. For less than $1 each, they have gifts to hand out to their teachers, grandparents, friends, aunts and cousins.
