Valentine Love Bug Suncatchers
I bought a variety of crafts to do with the children at the daycare where I work. The children are aged 5-9 years. All the ages loved this craft the most. Even my teenaged helpers wanted to make a suncatcher. I should have ordered two sets! The designs were quite cute. I bought the suncatcher glitter paint to use with them. Because some of the kids were a bit heavy with the paint, I ran out of paint. So, I recommend buying two sets of the paints or keeping a very close eye on the children.

They are adorable
These suncatchers are very cute. They have lots of small spaces and it is hard to get full coverage with the paint (we are using glitter paint pens).

Very cute and easy to paint. The paint pooled nicely in the slots and the kids had a lot of fun with this simple project!

easyu to paint for 6 year olds
Everyone fell in love with the love bugs. Kids had a great time coloring them using paint tubes....even the very small areas.

My 3 girls (ages 3-5) have a blast painting these. They love doing these on rainy weekends.

Excellent art project
The actual size of these were larger than expected. The kids loved making these. Some kids ended up making two or three. Be sure to buy the pens along with these. It was a hit with my son's class and with the teacher.

Fun 4th Grade Party
The Valentine's Day suncatchers stood up well to 4th graders. We planned for the suncatchers to stay at school to dry over the weekend as we saw that they took 12 hours to dry. They didn't break when accidentally dropped, either! It didn't take as much paint as we thought to make a good layer on the suncatchers, and the paints stayed in their area on the suncatchers.
