Glue Suncatchers !

The kids loved making these suncatchers. Any age can participate.

Plastic Lids
String or Yarn
Markers or Paint

Pour a thin layer of glue into a plastic lid.
Loop a piece of string and put the ends in the glue.
Let this dry overnight.

The next day, gently peel the glue off of the lid. It will be one large piece.
Have the kids color with markers or paint.
Once it is dry, you can hang it in the window with a piece of tape!

Grassy Gift Bag for spring/summer or Chirsitmas gifts.

This fun little gift bag can be for Easter, Spring, Summer or Christmas. It's a great way to differentiate your gift bag from others and kids love to use glue!

Small plastic bag, the thick kind. This one was from Ulta.
Green Tissue paper
Multi colored Brads


1.Lay down some paper or placemats and put bag on top.

2. Tear the tissue paper into 2 x 2" squares.

3. Glue squares to one side, overlapping them to create a nice cover. Then let dry for about 15 minutes. Turn over and repeat on the other side.

4. Once the bag is completely dry, start poking the brads through and folding back the ends so they stay.

Voila! You are done. For different holidays use different colored tissue and brags. You could use red tissue with white brag for V-day, or Orange tissue with black brags for Halloween.
