It is summer around here (or at least getting there). This is a fun activity for the sun that Brayden did in Kindergarten this year. It is a sun made from different cut pieces of paper. The pices are cut in various shapes: trapezoids, triangles, rectangles, diamonds, etc. That puts this activity covering fine motor skills, color skills, shapes, and gluing skills.
- Paper to glue yellow papers onto (the blue paper in this picture)
- Yellow papers of various shades. You might also do gold as shown here
Have your child draw a circle on the base paper. This will be the circle the yellow pieces go into.
Have your child cut out yellow pieces of paper. If your child is too young to cut, do this ahead of time and talk about the shapes as you glue.
Have your child glue the pieces into the circle for to create the sun!
