First day of Spring sun catcher

Today we decided to celebrate the first day of spring with a super simple craft. I really want Danny to get more up close and personal with nature but he’s been putting everything in his mouth so we had to go a different route with our nature exploration. We started by going on a nature walk to our local neighborhood park. I’m not gonna lie, I was nervous that being in Arizona we wouldn’t find very much greenery but we were pleasantly surprised. I made sure to only pick up things that were on the floor already and we ended up with a pretty neat collection 🙂

When we got home I placed a little bit (about two spoonfuls) of cheap gel in a ziplock bag, spread it out and then placed the items inside. I taped it down to Danny’s high chair and just let him have fun with it. When he was done with it I used the same tape to place it on the window and voila!

Step1 collect :

Step 2: add cheap gel

Step 3: tape and play

Step 4: display on window

I’m loving the way it turned out. I think it’s a perfect and simple way to ring in the spring.
