Make these adorable paper plate sun catchers with your little ones!
Draw a heart on the back of a decorative paper plate and cut it out with a craft knife. Using a single-hole punch, create evenly spaced holes around the edge of the plate. Cut a length of wool and attach one end to the back of the plate with Sellotape. On the other end of the wool, wrap a small piece of tape over the end to make it easier to thread through the holes. Weave from one side of the heart to the other until all the holes have wool woven through them. End off by weaving the wool to the back of the heart and secure in place with another piece of tape. The sun-catcher can either be stuck on the
window with Prestik or you can punch a hole in the top of the plate, thread a piece of wool through it and suspend it from a light fitting or the ceiling.
Tip: cut out the heart from a plain paper plate and let your child decorate the edges before threading the wool.
