Flower Petal Suncatcher

Spring or Summer is the perfect time to get outside and make a flower petal suncatcher. Toddlers and preschoolers will love collecting nature and using it to make their own patterns or pictures. The paper plate in this craft makes a simple and effective frame for the artwork.
