CIY Staff Tips:
- This project uses a hair dryer. Adult assistance required.
- Experiment with shades of blue for your raindrops!
- Try taping your raindrops so they hang at different heights.
- If needed, trim any excess string from your suncatcher.
Unwrap 4–6 crayons, then use crayon sharpener to create shavings.
Lay piece of wax paper on protected surface. Evenly sprinkle shavings onto wax paper.
Place slightly larger piece of wax paper overtop. Seal edges with duct tape.
With the help of an adult, use hair dryer to melt shavings. Let cool 15 min.
Cut raindrop shapes out of wax paper.
Tie piece of string onto wooden dowel.
Tape raindrops to string.
Repeat steps 6–7 until suncatcher is complete.
Hang and enjoy catching a sun shower!
