These heart sun-catchers were a big hit with my girls and kept them occupied on a long day stuck inside.  We kept this craft set up all day, and Rosie and Jewel returned to add to their "sticky hearts" often.  Read on for the easy tutorial.

  • Cut the hearts out and tape them to a window with the sticky side of the contact paper still covered but facing out.
  • Once the hearts are taped up remove the protective paper, and you will have sticky hearts!

  • Give kids tissue paper pieces, and they will delight in sticking the pieces to the hearts to make colorful sun-catchers.

My girls loved this activity so much that we ended up making several sticky hearts. Once Rosie and Jewel were done we were left with beautiful sun-catchers that perfectly decorated our windows for Valentine's Day.

A Few Tips:  
  • You only need a few pieces of masking tape to hang these in the window.  
  • I outlined the first big heart collage the girls made with red tape just so that they could clearly see that it was a heart they were filling in.  The red tape is not needed though.  
  • Contact paper can be found in the home improvement aisle of Walmart/Target as well as most school supply aisles.  It can also be found online here.  
  • For this activity we used regular tissue paper and cut it into pieces, but you can also buy pre-cut tissue paper squares if you prefer.
