An easy Fall or Autumn Craft for kids to make. Indian Corn Sun Catchers are a colorful project for the holidays. Light shines through where the holes are punched to display the fall colors of the kernels.
- Construction paper – I used green and off white for this example
- Scraps from a brown paper bag
- Hole punch
- Coffee filter or tissue paper
- Washable markers
- Spray bottle with water
- Place the coffee filter or tissue paper on a newspaper and decorate with the washable markers. Once colored in, spritz with the water until the colors run together. Set aside and allow time to dry.
- Cut out a 2″ x 6″ piece of construction paper and fold in half so that it measures 1″ x 6″.
- Punch holes in the folded paper. It is ok if they overlap, just be careful not to cut the paper in half.
- Trim one edge of the folded paper to create a point in the center as shown.
- Lay the construction paper on top of the dry coffee filter. Trace and cut out the same shape.
- Dot one side of the construction paper with glue and attach to the coffee filter.
- Add strips of paper bag at the base of the Indian Corn.
