DIY Nature Suncatcher

Elinor and her friends are always outside exploring nature. They notice the colors, shapes, and textures of natural items. This craft is a great way to explore nature with your child alone or with a group during a playdate or birthday party.

You can prepare a lot of the supplies ahead of time and just have the kids walk around outside collecting leaves and blossoms to add to their suncatchers. Then, ask your child and their friends how the different natural objects are affected by the sun. Do the colors of the leaves brighten? Do shadows appear on the ground?
