There's something very appealing about gloopy glue and colours. This sun catcher is a good way to look at colour mixing and create something at the same time.

Time: 15 minutes
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's
Level: Easy

Materials
Plastic lid with shallow lip



Glue, preschool, sun catcher, colour mixing

Skewer

Method
Pour glue into a plastic lid.

Drip on a few colours of liquid food colouring.

Use a skewer to swirl the colour through the glue. This is fun and it's hard to leave the kids to do it so you might want to make your own at the same time.

Leave to dry, ours was quite thick so took almost a week. The colours continue to merge together before the glue sets.
Once dry, peel out of the lid, punch a hole in the top and hang in front of a window. The colours are much more vibrant with the sun shining through.
