These FREE summer crafts are great for all ages. They do not involve very many materials. All you need is a paper plate, paint, construction paper and your hands.
A very hands on craft, and each one will have a different personality because no one's hands are the same shape and size.
Of course, add your own "look" to your sun.
We made a "cool" dude sun by adding sunglasses instead of eyes.
These summer crafts for kids will create a bright and fun decoration for any location!
Even on the rainy summer days you can have a little sunshine in your life!
Get your hands ready and let's get to crafting!
4 years and up
Color or paint the paper plate to the color you want your sun. Most of the time, unless you want to be creative, the sun will be yellow. Once it is all painted, set it aside to dry.
Take the orange and yellow construction paper and trace your hand print onto each paper 4 times. These 8 hands will be your sun rays.
Cut out all of your hand prints. If younger children have an adult or older sibling cut these out.
Using markers or paint, decorate a face onto your sun. For our example, we gave our sun some cool shapes.
Lay out your handprints in a circle, they will cover all the way around the sun face you created.
Glue all the hand prints around the sun face. Alternate the yellow and orange hand prints.
Now that we are all complete, take a pin and brighten up a room with these on the wall!
