How to Create A Juneteenth Suncatcher Craft

  1. Grab you contact paper and cut a square and use double sided tape to secure it to a window with the sticky side facing out.

Cut red, black and green tissue paper into squares and place them into bowls for easy access. Keep the colours separate especially for toddlers and preschoolers.

For toddlers and preschoolers, draw the lines of the flag so they know where to place each colour. You can also only give them one colour at a time to complete.

Stick the tissue paper up on to the contact paper in order to create the flag.
