I am Homeful

The following is a new activity that we have never done before. We would like your feedback as well as feedback from the Novas. Please take note of what areas were unclear, not age appropriate, and what the overall impression was towards the activity.


Supplies: All items from past create times, hole punch, string/chain, clear string, beads, and any remaining decorating materials.

  1. By this time, the colorful discs from Story Day should be dry. You will know they are ready when the edges start to peel off the lid.

  2. Peel the discs off the lids, then punch a hole in the top of each one.

  3. Instruct Novas to tie a string to each colorful disc and attach it to their hoop so that the colorful disc is hanging vertically. If desired, the Novas can add beads to their strings to make them more decorative.

  4. Next, instruct Novas to add their origami houses to their suncatchers by tying a string through the holes that you punched in the tops of them.

  5. Tie the other end of the string to the hoop.

  6. Instruct the Novas to do the same with their origami hearts and birds.

  7. They can add different materials, such as additional yarn, beads, glitter, or anything they want to make their suncatchers even more unique!
