    1. The drying time is a kicker, but so worth the wait :)

  2. Great idea. I'll plan to make one a few days ahead so we can make and hang within same session.

    1. I was able to sprinkle some water on them with no effect :) Your question has inspired me to experiment on a few and see what happens! I'll be posting all about it soon :)

  5. Stunning! I couldn't help but pin the beautiful butterfly sun catcher onto pinterest. I've never seen this done before. It's so cool!

  6. How wonderful! I have to ask, are they flexible when they dry or do they dry pretty firm. Either way they are just wonderful!

    1. Hi Kristin :) Thank you for your comment. Yes, when they are dry they are stiff.

  7. Oh my word! That is the coolest way of demonstrating dissolving ever! My son is curious at the moment about the difference between dissolving and melting, this is perfect to help demonstrate. Quick question, will they break down if they get wet?

    1. Hi! A quick experiment of splashing water onto them surprisingly showed they can withstand getting wet a little. Planning an experiment with Chook to really answer this query soon :)

  10. What a great idea. I love how you coloured the sun catchers.

    Thanks so much for linking to Science Sparks.

  11. This is such a good idea! I'm wondering if they are so stiff after drying that they break easily? The way white glue dries hard and then breaks. I want to use them for something else...light box activities where they would be handled by the children. Putting the gelatin in ABC cookie cutter molds and using them with the light box...Thanks!
