What you will need:
- Black craft paper
- Coloured tissue paper (the more colours the better)
- Glue stick
- Cut out a large circular shape from the black craft paper - the larger the circle, the bigger the suncatcher.
- Fold the circle in half. Once folded, fold in half again. Repeat this one more time so in total, you have folded the circle in half three times.
- Use a pencil to draw patterns on the black folded card, use any shape you like! This is a great way for the children to explore the different shapes.
- Once you have finished drawing out the pattern, cut the shapes out using your scissors.
- Once you have cut out your pattern, open up your rangoli suncatcher.
- Use the glue stick to attach small square sections of coloured tissue paper to the shapes on the rangoli.
- Once you have filled the cut-out patterns with the tissue paper you are done! You can then hang your rangolis to make a lovely rangoli display to celebrate Diwali.
