We love making suncatchers and with the King’s Coronation taking place later this year, we thought it would be fun to make a King Charles suncatcher. We used the King Charles III colouring sheet we made, which is based on his portrait on the new 50p coin. My daughter loves collecting special 50p coins, but this isn’t one we have managed to find – yet!

Easy King Charles suncatcher for kids
First you will need to print the King Charles III colouring sheet, which is based on his portrait on the new 50p coin. We made this last year and is a great basis for a suncatcher. We printed it out quite small but you an easily re-size to make a larger suncatcher.
Remove the head of King Charles by carefully cutting into the shape and around the edge. I used a scalpel knife as our suncatcher was small but you can use scissors if you’ve printed out a larger version.
Cover the empty space with a piece of contact paper, we put it over the front of our suncatcher to help it stick to the window.
Cut the red and blue cellophane into small pieces.
Turn over the suncatcher and place the coloured pieces of cellophane on the contact paper.
We decided to cut round our suncatcher before placing it in the window.
