Kids welcome the summer season with a colorful sun they make themselves!

This activity is appropriate for:
1st - 3rd grade / 6 - 8 years

You will need:

Directions

  1. Cut three sheets of tissue paper (red, yellow, and orange) into approximately 1" x 1" squares. Crumple the tissue paper.
  2. Direct students to dip the crumpled tissue paper into glue and stick it onto the bowls. Set aside to dry.
  3. Reduce or enlarge the sun template so that the sun’s circle is the same size as the rim of the bowl.
  4. Staple three sheets of tissue paper (red, yellow, and orange) together. Trace the Sun Template onto the layers of tissue paper, then cut out the shape you just traced.
  5. Put glue on the rim of one bowl and place it facedown on the tissue paper. Let it set for a few minutes. Repeat the process on the other bowl.
  6. Once the bowls have completely dried, staple them together. Punch a hole at the top, and display with yarn.
