Supplies for Polar Bear Suncatcher


  1. First, download and print the free polar bear silhouette. Carefully cut it out.
  2. Next, cut out two large pieces of clear contact paper.
  3. Place a dinner plate on the paper side of the contact papers then trace around it. Carefully cut each circle from the contact paper.
  4. Peel off the backing of one of the round contact paper. Cover the inside with colored tissue paper squares. You can also add glitter.
  5. Once the round contact paper is completely covered, glue the polar bear silhouette into the middle.
  6. Finally, peel off the back of the second contact paper and place it over the polar bear and tissue paper. Use scissors to remove excess plastic. Add double sided tape to the back of the polar bear suncatcher then attach to window.

I love the way our polar bear suncatchers turned out. It looks so nice hanging on our sliding glass door but you can also place it on your window.

Children can work on color sorting with the tissue papers as well as creating patterns while making their suncatchers. Little ones will have a great time counting the tissue squares as they add them to the contact paper. This is also a great time for kids to practice using scissors. There’s always different ways to learn while crafting.
