Today's craft idea is easy to make, has simple supplies and is great for toddlers or preschoolers! Some school age kiddos may love it too.

The heart shape works well for anything Valentine's related or if you're looking for a fun heart themed activity.

You can also use different shaped stencils, tissue paper colors or ribbon colors to make a different sun catcher next time.

We love to hang ours in the sunniest windows and enjoy the beautiful colors.
