Here is another homemade gift the girls made this year. These homemade Christmas sun catchers make a great gift for teachers, family, or friends. They are also a perfect size to be wrapped and put in stockings too.
Both girls had fun making these, and they are a great craft for any age. My little one made the snowflake because it was easy to just put in one color beads into the cookie cutters. My older daughter was able to actually make designs so she made the snowman and candy cane. If you are hosting a play-date at your place this would make a great craft project (if you have enough cookie cutters for each kid) since it can be done by any age.
The only bad thing about making these is that when you cook them they smoke a little and stink up the house. I opened up a couple windows in the kitchen and that helped clear it all out, but with it being so cold out I would rather not have had to do that. So I searched the web for another way and found that over at The Artful Parent she came up with a way to melt them on the grill she also has a TON of different sun catchers on her blog so it is totally worth the visit to go check it out!
