Summer vacation is in full swing for everyone I know. And even if you have your kids signed up for camps, sports, and learning programs, there’s bound to be a rainy day or two. Suddenly, you’ll find yourself with a full house and nothing to do. Don’t panic - file away this fun, easy kid’s suncatcher craft that requires nothing but household items: water, Epsom salt, and a plastic lid.
Heck the hardest part is probably going to be remembering to hand onto a clear plastic lid. I know in my house we tend to recycle all of our plastic so we are pending this project until we get a lids. In the meantime though we've been checking out some other great ideas on the craft section of the Epsom Salt website.
