Heart Sun Catcher

 Every once in a while I like to do a group art project, something that everyone works on together. It's true that no one gets to take it home to share with their family but it teaches teamwork. It's also nice to look at it in the classroom and talk about how we made a beautiful piece of artwork together. Our proje t today was a heart shaped sun catcher. 
I cut out a large heart from contact paper and taped it to the table with the sticky side up. I set scissors and red and pink tissue paper on the table too.  
 The children set to work cutting up the tissue paper and sticking it to the heart. Some of them quickly grew tired of cutting the paper and resorted to ripping it, which ended up being much more fun. 
 When the heart was completely covered, we stuck it to one of the windows in our classroom and admired our work.
