At the moment my guilty pleasure seems to be watching episodes of the Clangers. I find it strangely relaxing and super easy to sit and watch with my children. They seem to enjoy it as much as me and have been asking me to find pictures for them to colour.
Today we went one step further and made our own Tiny Clanger and Soup-Dragon sun catchers which we wanted to share.
We were inspired by this Supersoft Clangers plush toy. Little Sis received the Tiny character which is very realistic and detailed (RRP £5.99)
Clangers sun catchers
I found a couple of Clangers colouring pictures online and used them as a basis to make sun catchers. I traced around them onto a sheet of white paper and cut out the inside. Then placed it onto a sheet of contact paper. Meanwhile my 5 year had cut cellophane sheets into small pieces.
Then he sat down to make the sun catchers, using mainly pinks for Tiny and green for the Soup-Dragon.
Big Brother received a Clangers Collectable Figures pack containing Mother and Tiny and he’s been busy making a planet play scene for them. I’ll be sharing more about this in a week or two.
