Did you watch the new Mary Poppins film? What did you think of it? I personally loved it, although it will never replace the classic one. In honour of the new film we have been making kite sun catchers to brighten up our playroom.

Make sure you follow my Disney craft board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own kite sun catchers you will need:

  • Coloured paper
  • Scissors
  • Sticky back plastic
  • Coloured beads
  • String/ribbon

Start out by making some kite frames from the paper. We used card stock instead ordinary paper as it is sturdier.

Stick your cut out onto the sticky back plastic, then use the beads to decorate it. The beads we used were small jewellery ones that came from Tiger. If you don’t have any of these sorts of beads you could always use tissue paper instead.

To stop the beads from falling off, I then covered it with some more sticky back plastic.

Finally add a tail to your kite and stick it to a suitably sunny window.

I made our ones with BB.  He had enjoyed using the beads a few weeks ago in some play dough, so it was fun to see if he would like using them in this way.  It didn’t disappoint.  Although these kite sun catchers don’t take long to make, BB enjoyed sprinkling his beads all over his sun catcher (and everywhere else too).

If you enjoyed making these kite sun catchers be sure to check out my glue sun catchers and stained glass pasta.
