Tip: Creating Gelatin Sun Catchers and Activities to Do with Them

I found this kid’s activity on Dilly-Dali Art:

I thought this would be a fun activity to have the kids create. It would give them an opportunity to be creative with the colors and decorations.

I would recommend using plastic plates for this activity. We tried 2 gelatin sun catchers on paper plates and had difficulty getting the dried gelatin off of the plates. Most of the plate came off with the gelatin. They made great sun catchers.

Educational addition:

This activity also would be a great lesson on mixing colors (by using the food coloring). You could also discuss how sun filters through the sun catchers.
