Valentines Inspired Mickey Mouse Sun Catcher

I’m always looking for new things or crafts for us to do at home. Adding in Disney just peaks my girls interest so much more, and keeps her engaged. What can I say we are definitely a Disney family. 

These sun catchers are something fun for the kids to do. They can hang on the window to catch the beautiful rays of sun in a fun way. If you have older kids they can do most the work, with younger ones like my toddler you will need to do most the work. 

Here is what you need: 

A fun paper plate- these were themed to Valentines Day but you could use anything

Big Pieces of Glitter or Confetti 

Clear Contact Paper 

Scissors 

Mickey Cookie Cutter (you can also just use a cut out) 

Pen or Marker 

Ribbon (optional) 

To start flip your plate over to trace your Mickey head onto the paper plate. 

Poke your scissors through to cut out the Mickey shape. The plates I used were super thick and harder to cut. I might recommend using something a little less thick. 

Cut 2 pieces of contact paper to fit the middle of plate. 

Add contact paper to back side of the plate then flip over and add the glitter or confetti. Once that’s added top with the other piece of contact paper, and make sure to smooth it down really well. 

I decided to add some ribbon but you don’t have too. To add it I just poked a hole with my scissors and strung it through. 

Now you have a fun sun catcher you can make with supplies you probably already have at home. If we could get some Sunshine here so we can use ours that would be great! Make sure to show me all your creations.
