DIY Dinosaur Suncatchers
A FAVORITE art project
The Suncatchers made by Oriental Trading Company have always been a HIT at parties and art events, and they fit in perfectly with our study of Dinosaurs this year. The suncatcher paint markers are the easiest to paint them, and there is a variety of colors.The hooks and suction stickers need to be purchased so the dinosaurs can be hung on windows.

We are using these for our craft time one day for VBS. We weren't sure we would like them as I was sure how they would look once here. I'm pleased to say they look great and for all of our dinosaur loving kids they will be extremely happy as well. Just wish they would ship the paints to AK as well. Oh well.

i bought these for craft saturdays at our home and the kids, age 5, 4 & 2 love them. they are large enough for easy painting. the paint pens work the best. the kids love using the hooks to hang them on the windows in their rooms.

I purchased the sun catchers for an arts and craft project for my son's 4th dino party. The sun catchers are cute but they are not what I expected. I thought they would be glass but they are a clear, hard plastic material. I guess it's better that the sun catchers are plastic as glass is very fragile - overall I am very happy with this product and it is a great project to do with the children.

my kids & their friends love doing these suncatchers at home. these are so cute, study and easy for the kids (3 - 6 years) to paint with just a little supervision. (i used them with the glitter suncatcher paint in tubes)

Great Activity for Kids
We used these at our Kids Club end of year party. It was a dinosaur themed event with "Buddy" and the kids loved painting the suncatchers. I wish I had ordered more, so they kids could have painted another one.

Our family loves these suncatchers. I've bought every style from OT and my kids enjoy doing them everyday.
I highly recommend.

We did these as a fun activity for my son's 4th bday party and they went over so well! the kids loved them, they were fun and easy and they had a fun project to take home and hang in a window! I bought a big bag of simple, clear suction cups at a craft store for $2 and stuck them in their goody bags. Lots of compliments from the mamas! The paint pens were a great deal and turned out wonderful! Much cheaper here then at craft stores--and better colors!!

Great party craft
The dinosaur sun catchers were a huge hit at my daughter's 5th birthday party yesterday. It is a perfect rainy-day activity and the kids ranging from pre-K to 3rd grade had a blast painting them. There was a little extra black marking on most of the sun catchers as another reviewer reported, but the kids didn't notice. Try sprinkling a little iridescent glitter on them while the glass paint is still wet - our results were amazing!

I bought these for my sons bday party some came damaged with black lines across them one was even broken. They do look nice once painted but I think they should be made better.
