Kids Corner

What you will need:

  • Old muffin tins or pie pans. (they should not be used for food after this project)
  • A tub of beads.
  • A dill with a small drill bit for drilling a hole in the sun catcher for hanging.
  • Fishing line.
Here's what you'll do:
  • Separate the beads into bowls according to color (it makes them easier to work with)
  • Arrange the beads in the muffin tin or pie pan in the pattern you'd like your sun catcher to be.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes (Make sure you raise a few windows and if you can, go outside - the smell is bad and I'm sure it is not good for your lungs, but the smell goes away fast with the windows open)
  • Allow to cool.  You will probably hear a popping noise from the pans.  This is the sun catcher cooling off.
  • After cooling, they should pop right out of the pan easily.
  • Then drill a small hole at the top of the sun catcher and hang with fishing line.
  • Enjoy!
