This activity is just fun! You will make suncatcher using glue and some translucent rocks!
You will need: Lids to Plastic Yogurt Containers (Flimsy is good), Glass Gemstones, Elmer’s Glue
- Fill the bottom of the lid with glue, not too full as you don’t want it to overflow.
- Arrange gemstones of different colors in the lid. Make sure to leave room to put a string through it, whether it’s on top or on the sides
- Let the glue dry (may take a day).
- Once the glue is dried, pop the sun-catcher out of the lid, put a string through it and hang it in a window!
What is a GEM?
Not all minerals are gems but all gems are minerals.
To be considered a gem, it must be beautiful, strong (as in the MOH’s hardness scale), and it has to be rare.
