Capture the sun with a simple suncatcher made from materials you have at home. All you need are:

  • coffee filters
  • scissors
  • markers
  • tray and bowl
  • water

Use the round shape of the coffee filter or experiment by cutting out different shapes. Watch the video to find out what to do next, and you will also explore chromatography (separating mixtures).

Ask questions to spark more critical thinking:

  • What colors do you see?
  • How many colors do you see?
  • Which one do you find most interesting?
  • Why?
