Let the sun shine in your preschool classroom

I enjoy coming in and observing the different ways each class puts their own spin on making a sun.

In this class, the children painted their paper plates with yellow tempera paint mixed with salt to give a little sparkle and texture.

After the paint dried, the children turned the plates over and added strips of orange and yellow crepe paper for the sun rays.

I noticed that some of the children grouped their crepe paper strips by color and some worked to create a yellow and orange pattern around the edges of their plate.

There were other sunshines made as well….
