Our preschooler is enchanted by flowers lately. From creating bouquets from her grandmother's garden to planting our own, it's the perfect time of year to add flowers everywhere. We created a suncatcher flower garden in a window!

While our daughter E was having a play date at a neighbor's house I set up her invitation to create. I taped contact paper to her bedroom window, added Craft Project Ideas' fuzzy sticks as stems, and put out pompoms, acrylic gems, and our favorite transparent counters. As soon as she arrived home to discover her surprise she was delighted!
Since the gems and counters are transparent, they create a suncatcher effect when the sun shines through. We worked on a dreary day but it still brightened up the window! E is excited to recreate and change her garden all season long!
I did need to tape the fuzzy sticks in place as the contact paper wasn't strong enough to hold them up by itself. While she created her garden, E counted pieces, discussed the parts of a flower, and practiced her fine motor skills!
