I love my contact paper.

I put up a piece on the window and let my daughter stick things to it all the time.

Here’s a fall themed contact paper leaf craft we did.

Since we just had a big snow storm and it’s too cold to go outside I thought we’d brighten things up with a Valentine’s craft for my toddler.

Valentine’s Days Suncatcher Craft Contact Paper for Toddler or Preschoolers

What you need:

Clear Contact Paper

Tissue Paper

Construction Paper




Step 1:

Make some hearts.  If you have a printer at home I suggest printing off a stencil like this one (use the 5′ and 4′).  Or you can free style a heart like I did using this method.

Step 2:

Cut up pieces of tissue paper.  I used 4 colors and cut them into squares. I didn’t worry about making them the same size.    

Step 3:

Tape down a piece of contact paper onto the table your child will be sitting at.  Remember to tape it so the sticky side is up (I may have taped it the wrong way the first time)

I find taping the corners down and then peeling the back off easiest.

Then I tape down all the sides once the sticky side is exposed.

Place your hearts on the contact paper.

Step 4:

Let your little one place pieces of tissue paper inside the hearts (if they put them everywhere its totally ok!).

Step 5:

Cut out the hearts and tape them to the window to make heart suncatchers. You can tape them either way – ie. sticky side in or out – whichever you prefer.    

Hope you enjoy making these super cute Valentine’s Day Craft Suncatchers! We did!
