Have you ever read the book Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert? It is a fun book which celebrates all the colors you can find in a flower garden.
After enjoying the book, we decided to “plant” our own rainbow on our window by making a Planting a Rainbow suncatcher collage.

How to make a Planting a Rainbow suncatcher collage
I taped a large piece of contact paper, sticky side out, to our patio window.
I then gave the girls the green strips of paper and all the tissue paper bits.
Before they began, I had prepped the projects by cutting some circles from the tissue paper. The kids can help with the tearing.
Once we were all set up, I asked the girls to work together to create their own rainbow garden.
The girls loved working together to create their masterpiece.
They made rainbow flowers, then added a sky, several suns, clouds, grass, and even a few seeds.
It turned out beautiful! It looked like such a magical world with the multiple sun and the stained glass sky.
When the girls were finished, I turned the contact paper around so that the sticky side was on the glass. We hung our masterpiece on the patio window so the sun can shine through it during the day.
And, when we’re ready to take it down, the contact paper will come off the window easily. (It will not leave a sticky residue on your window even if you leave it up for weeks. I’ve tried it!)
