One craft that we do year round are suncatchers, they’re great because it can be easily adapted for the younger kids. My two year old and four year old love making these and it’s great practice for scissor skills. With St. Patrick’s Day not too far away we started decorating with these Rainbow Shamrock Suncatchers.
Easy Rainbow Shamrock Suncatcher Kids Craft

To start off you’re going to take your sheets of rainbow colored tissue paper and cut them into small squares.
To make it easier for the kids I cut a large square of contact paper and taped it down to the table with the sticky side facing up. Then the kids can take their cut up tissue paper and apply it to the contact paper.
When they’re finished you’ll want to cut another square of contact paper and place it over the first one. Then press it down while smoothing out any air bubbles. Once you’ve done that, you can either draw or trace a shamrock using this stencil here and trace it onto the contact paper. Cut out your shamrock and tape it up to the window to display!
Some kids tend to add a ton of layers of tissue paper making the contact paper not stick together so well, so you can add a little bit of scotch tape to the edges to better secure it.
