Miffy sun catchers

Miffy sun catchers - the gingerbread house

You know we’re huge fans of Miffy and we love to make sun catchers so today we’re sharing our really easy Miffy sun catcher craft. Everyone knows that Miffy loves to wear a pretty dress, like the ones in Miffy’s birthday book. Reading it totally inspired us to make Miffy a new colourful wardrobe.

Equipment needed to make Miffy sun catchers:
Printed image of Miffy (we found ours here)
Coloured cellophane sheets
Sticky tape
Bakers twine

How to make Miffy sun catchers

I printed 6 pictures of Miffy and carefully cut out her dress. We chose as many pieces of different coloured cellophane we could find and cut squares large enough to cover the space left by her cut out dress.

Miffy sun catchersWe turned our Miffy pictures over and secured the cellophane in place with small pieces of sticky tape.

Miffy sun catchersI cut small pieces of bakers twine which we attached to each sheet of paper with more sticky tape. The children wanted to hang our garland in the garden but I eventually persuaded them to let me hang it indoors.
