So a sun craft was in order! I liked this suncatcher idea from InCultureParent.
The Whirl Girl remembered this picture of the Sun God in her book, which she used as inspiration
- construction paper
- wax paper
- red, orange, yellow small crayon pieces (I chopped old crayons with a sharp knife)
Step One: Make the sun's interior. Cut two round circles out of wax paper. Sprinkle crayon pieces on one and put the other on top.
Step Two: Using a dish towel below and on top of the wax paper, iron the wax paper. Just hold the iron down in each place for a couple of seconds. It will melt the crayons for this effect:
Step Three: Cut out circles of construction paper to go around the wax paper. Add some rays if you'd like. We were a little more elaborate in this part than I had intended because The Whirl Girl was really excited about using some new craft scissors that she was gifted that create different shapes when cutting.
Step Four: Glue it all together.
The Final Product. When it catches the sun, it glows!
