Colorful Sun Catcher from Glue

Colorful Sun Catcher from Glue

This sun catcher is totally fun, but you will have to wait several days for it to dry. That makes this a perfect weekend project. Do the first part of the project on one weekend, and the following Friday afternoon finish it up!

Colorful Sun Catcher from Glue

Gather the following supplies:

White craft glue (or school glue)
Plastic lid (cottage cheese, sour cream, yogurt, etc)
Liquid food coloring
Embroidery floss
Needle (Parents handle this if creating with young kids)
Pony beads
3 (4-hole) buttons

    How hot are the outside temperatures where you live? I’m concerned the glue would actually melt in a desert climate.

      Hi Tiffiny! Actually we’ve had a pretty mild summer with temps in the 70s and 80s. I have had this sun catcher handing in my front living room window since I made it and it’s still doing fine. That particular window gets full afternoon sun and if I don’t close the drapes in the afternoon it gets pretty hot in the room! I was worried about it melting too, but there have been no physical changes to it at all :)
