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
- Pen or pencil
What to do (for each suncatcher):
- Trace a heart in the center on the bottom of the plate and cut out.
- Trace two circles on the Contact paper and cut them out.
- Peel the backing off of one circle and place it on the front of the paper plate with the sticky side down.
- Put the confetti pieces on the table where the students can reach them.
- Have your students earn confetti pieces throughout the session and put them on the sticky side of the heart.
- When finished, peel the backing off of the other circle and place it on the back of the plate sealing the confetti in place.
