You’ll Need

* Paper Plate
* Yellow Paint and Paint Brush
* Yellow and Orange Construction Paper
* Pencil
* Scissors
* Glue Stick
* Black Marker

Sun Handprint Craft

Directions:

Paint the bottom (outside) of the plate yellow and allow to dry.

Trace your child’s handprint with pencil on the yellow and orange construction paper. You’ll need about 6 to 8 yellow and the same amount of orange handprints.

Cut out the handprints and start by gluing the yellow handprints all around the plate, leaving a little gap between the handprints. Glue the orange handprints behind the yellow ones to fill in the gaps.

Draw a face on the sun using the black marker.

I like to put the child’s name and age, or the date on the back of the plate for future reference.

You’ll Need

* Sock
* Glue
* Felt Scraps
* Yarn, Embroidery Floss etc.
* Wiggly Eyes

Directions:

Put those old socks and those that have lost their mate to good use by turning them into sock puppets.

Put the sock on your hand and tuck in the tip of the sock (where your toes usually go) to form a mouth. Glue a piece of red or pink felt in as a tongue. Glue the wiggly eyes on the sock and add other felt scraps to make ears, tails, hair, even wings. Use yarn or embroidery floss as hair or whiskers.

You can turn your old sock into any type of animal or person, even creatures of your own. Don’t forget to put on a big sock puppet show afterwards.
