Epsom Salt Kids Suncatcher Craft

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.

Measuring cup
Epsom salt
Microwaveable dish
Clear, plastic lid

1. Heat ¼ cup of water in the microwave for 30 seconds
2. Add in ¼ cup of Epsom salt
3. Stir until the salt crystals have dissolved
4. Pour mixture onto the plastic lid (just enough to cover the bottom)
5. Let sit by a window overnight
6. When completely dry, cut a small hole near the edge of the plastic lid
7. Tie string through the hole
8. Hang in window!
