Sunshine and rainbows! What could make your little one happier?
This SunGemmers craft kit will bring the sunshine to your home with its dazzling rays. It comes with two pre-printed designs—a sun and rainbow—and over 700 colorful gemstones for your child to work with.
The package also includes:

- A pamphlet with instructions on how to make the SunGemmers
It’s an easy craft and your little girl will enjoy making the design come to life in three steps:
- Choose a color pattern, and place the corresponding transparent SunGemmers design on top of the pre-printed color guide.
Use a clipboard or tape to secure the two sheets together and keep the pattern aligned to the guide.
- Peel and stick the gemstones on the transparent sheet to match the guide underneath.
The gems come in many different colors and two sizes. Each transparent gem has an adhesive on one side that sticks firmly to the sheet.
- Finally, use the mounting tape to stick the SunGemmers on your window.
To get the perfect sun catching effect, choose a spot on your window that gets direct light. You’ll love how your home lights up with vibrant colors that travel across the room as the sun moves across the sky.

Frequently Asked Questions

Besides, solo playtime for kids means more me-time for you.
Some other benefits of SunGemmers include:
- Sharpening your kid’s creativity and enriching their imagination
With over seven hundred multicolored gems in each kit, she will be busy for hours and could choose to create many of her own designs
- Teaching problem-solving skills
By starting with a blank template, your kiddo will need to figure out what gem goes where until she gets the SunGemmers sparkling and ready to hang
- Honing your kid’s fine motor skills
She’ll need to peel and stick the little gems to match the guide
This requires concentration, eye-hand coordination, pincer, and manipulation skills to get it right
- Building your child’s patience and persistence
It’ll take your kid lots of patience to peel and stick the tiny gems in place

Are SunGemmers kid-friendly?
Yes, our SunGemmers craft kits are recommended for kids ages 6 and up.
We ensure our toys meet set safety standards by testing them in an independent laboratory, using high-quality and non-toxic materials. Our SunGemmers craft kits have won two awards:
- NAPPA (National Parenting Product Awards)—this trusted company uses qualified evaluators, parents, and child testers to ascertain toy safety before recommending them to families
- The Toy Insider—uses toy experts to gather reviews from parents and uses the research collected to curate toy gift guides that align with the first-hand experiences of users
What is the difference between SunGemmers and glass suncatchers?
The main difference is the material used. While SunGemmers are made from acrylic gemstones, glass suncatchers use clear or stained-glass to make shiny crystals.
This table breaks down the differences between the two:
|Durability||Doesn’t crack from a fall||Easily breaks from a fall|
|Flexibility||Portable, light, and come in multiple designs giving you the flexibility to recreate your custom SunGemmers||Most come as a complete ready-to-hang piece with hooks, giving you no room to customize|
|Safety||Safer since it doesn’t crack from a fall||Unsafe because you may get cuts from glass pieces when the suncatcher falls|
|Price||Cheaper than glass suncatchers||Pricier than SunGemmers|
