Bead Suncatchers
Do you have extra beads laying around the house not being used? Gather them all and let your kids make beautiful bead suncatchers that they can hang on their windows! For this project, all your kids have to do is arrange inexpensive pony beads in a pattern within a cupcake baking dish. Then melt the beads and viola; you have a beautiful suncatcher!
