Let a simple sun catcher in your window remind you of your one wide world with its hundreds of cultures and millions of people celebrating with their different traditions, fiestas, holidays, food and heroes.
Instructions: To begin, go to www.enchantedlearning.com and search for Earth pendant/sun catcher. Print out one copy of the Western Hemisphere and one of the Eastern Hemisphere, using the color templates. Carefully cut them out (ask an adult for help).
The sample shown was made using two clear plastic plates. Use a generous amount of glue from a glue stick on the front of each map you printed and cut out, and stick them to the top of each plate.
Next, attach a piece of string or yarn to the top of each plate. Then turn it over and decorate the edges with stickers, glitter or something creative.
Finally, hang your sun catcher in a window.
Alternate option: Instead of plastic plates, use clear contact paper and sandwich the maps between to pieces, then trim off the excess edges.
