Pre-cut some leaf shapes out of tissue paper. I folded the tissue paper many times before making any cuts, and this made the cutting much faster. Also, cut some brown construction paper to form a tree trunk, and some green construction paper to make some grass. Older kids can do the cutting themselves.
Next, lay a sheet of contact paper sticky side up, and attach the trunk and grass to one side. Invite your child to arrange the leaves on and around the tree.
Fold the contact paper over to form a seal. Trim the edges, and hang with a ribbon.
Admire your beautiful suncatcher!
