This is a great project to do with your children any time of year—sure, there is more sun during the warmer seasons, but there is still sun during winter! There are a few ways to make sun catchers, but here is my favorite and what I believe to be the most creative. For quicker, easier versions, see Recycled Water Bottle Flower Sun Catchers and Plastic Lid Sun Catcher.
CAUTION: Anything more durable than a plastic water bottle has more potential to have sharp edges when you cut it up. If you choose to use a more durable container, make sure YOU (not your child) proceed with caution.
