- Cut center out of paper plates.
- Cut contact paper into squares to fit over cut out paper plates. Two squares of contact paper is needed for each sun-catcher.

How to Set up for Kids:
- Set out some green or red tempera paint for the kids to paint stripes on the paper plates to make them look like candies used on gingerbread houses. Set aside to dry.
- Peel the backs off of contact paper, and place them sticky side up on activity table. Use a little tape to hold the contact paper in place while kids get creative.
- Put out a container of tissue paper squares and invite children to stick tissue paper onto contact paper.
How to assemble Stained Glass Window Suncatchers:
- Once the kids are finished sticking the tissue paper squares on the contact paper, stick another square of contact paper sticky side down so both sides are smooth, then cut off excess contact paper to fit the paper plates.
- When you have the contact paper trimmed, use tape to attach the colorful contact paper to the paper plates.
