Makit & Bakit Suncatcher

Makit & Bakit is a kids craft from the 70’s and early 80’s. I remember spending lots of time perfecting the placement of these little plastic crystals. When I spotted a pack at a garage sale I snagged it up for my kids. My four year old was so excited. Remembering how precise I was as a child, it was hard for me not to lend a hand. He grabbed large pinches of the little pieces and let them fall. He did yell “Mommy stop!” a few times, if I tried to offer help.

It took him less than ten minutes to complete. After baking, we had our new suncatcher. I love my little guy’s work! My $0.25 was money well spent. Just be warned, as they bake in your oven at 375 degrees they give off a slight smell of burnt plastic. Gross!
