Making a rainbow pony bead prism suncatcher is fun for both kids and adults. The beads are strung in a rainbow of colors and the prism will cast beautiful rainbows all over the room when the sun hits it.
Kids can learn their colors and practice their fine motor skills while doing this simple craft. My daughter is almost three and she loved it!
Please don’t offer this craft to youngsters that are still mouthing objects or are not ready to handle small parts or plastic needles. The size of the pony beads presents a choking hazard to children 3 and under.
