Shapes Rainbow Suncatcher

Colors and shapes are some of the first concepts we introduce to toddlers. Did you know color and shape sorting are essential early math skills?

Sorting activities help kids understand when things are alike and different building the foundation for pattern recognition. Here is a simple idea to make a rainbow suncatcher where kids get to sort the colors and shapes.


How to make rainbow suncatcher with contact paper and tissue paper?

It is an easy spring activity for toddlers and preschoolers. You can also make this rainbow craft for St. Patrick's Day.

You might notice, we used regular paper for this activity but tissue paper would be better for a suncatcher since they're translucent. Hope you enjoy this rainbow activity for preschoolers.

You can see my 4 yo working on her rainbow suncatcher in the video tutorial.
