Super Fun Sun

Hunter has been sick again this week so we haven’t done any activities for the last couple days. He’s finally feeling a bit better so we got back to work today 🙂 We are having a lot of fun with our space theme and today we made an awesome sunshine that I found on Pinterest.


Here is what you’ll need: newspaper, black construction paper, cardstock, saran wrap, tape, paint, scissors and glue (not in the picture).


Cut out a circle on the cardstock and put red, yellow and orange paint on the circle.

Then cover it with saran wrap and tape the saran wrap to the newspaper.


 Next, let your child squash and push the paint around.  Hunter loved how it felt and played with it for a long time (with no mess!).

Then put some of the paint on your newspaper and use a q-tip to add a little more paint to make the rays.

    How neat! I love that the messy part is contained but that little hands can still “feel” what is going on! My 2 year old would love this! Thanks for sharing at the Bee Crafty Kids link up!
