Bring on some sunshine in preschool

We are just starting to see some spring weather coming our way and boy do we need it! To make a little spring of our own, the children made these fun little sunshines to display in their classrooms.

All you need are large coffee filters, food color, bowl, and some water to get you started…

The children took turns dipping a coffee filter in water with yellow food color added…

This approach to coloring their coffee filter was a little different then we had tried in the past…

Once the coffee filter was completely immersed in the colored water then they took it out to see their bright yellow sunshines…

Sometimes the coffee filter would get all folded up from the water but the children were able to spread them back out easily…

Then they set the yellow suns out on newspaper to let dry overnight….

On Day Two…

The children used scissors to cut little snips all the way around the edges of their yellow sunshines…

And added a smiley face…

Now we have some happy sunshines to bring a little spring into our classrooms!
