Heart Suncatcher Craft for Therapy

Heart Suncatcher Craft for Therapy

I’m always keeping my eye out for crafts that can be used in therapy sessions. You know, the ones that take only a few materials, need minimal prep, and can be done with a group. I also make sure they have pieces that the students can earn, so that they serve as a reinforcement to their therapy efforts. Well, this one from I Heart Crafty Things fits the bill!

What you need:

  • Red or pink dessert sized paper plates (one for each student)
  • Tissue paper confetti
  • Clear Contact paper
  • Heart shape for tracing
  • Bowl or circle pattern that is bigger than the heart for tracing
  • Scissors
  • Pen or pencil

What to do (for each suncatcher):

  1. Trace a heart in the center on the bottom of the plate and cut out.
  2. Trace two circles on the Contact paper and cut them out.
  3. Peel the backing off of one circle and place it on the front of the paper plate with the sticky side down.
  4. Put the confetti pieces on the table where the students can reach them.
  5. Have your students earn confetti pieces throughout the session and put them on the sticky side of the heart.
  6. When finished, peel the backing off of the other circle and place it on the back of the plate sealing the confetti in place.
