For my Start a Smile Challenge entry, I have chosen to make Smile Catchers! These are sun catchers that I have made for Senior citizens in my community. One of my hobbies is making jewelry and I was able to use the leftover beads and wire pieces from other projects to create these beaded sun catchers. They themselves are beautiful to look at, however, as the sun hits them throughout the day, light shines through the beads, allowing for colors to be thrown around the room too. This easily brightens any space and makes Seniors smile! These can be stuck on the outside of people’s windows using adhesive hooks that can later be removed and are, therefore, safe for myself and Seniors during the COVID 19 pandemic.
