Kids Can Make These Magical Recycled Suncatchers At Home

These look so pretty hanging in the window.

Upcycle a few common household single-use bottles to make a beautiful suncatcher! For this recipe, collect several brightly colored plastics that are malleable enough to cut with scissors or a hole punch.

Get creative with your mosaic design and let it hang in a window to catch the sunlight. Attach to a string and hang from a singular point, so that the mosaic can rotate and refract colorful light all over your home!
