Fun Sun Craft Ideas

Do you need some simple ideas for how to use the sun template printables? Here are a few fun and easy ways to use the different sun templates!

Sun fork painting fun! Print out the large template or one with just the center. Dip a fork in yellow paint then press it on the template. This can make fun sun rays with paint. Plus, kids love using different materials for painting.

Summer is hot and it is a good time to do ice painting! If you have an ice cube tray add food coloring to water in the tray. Then put a popsicle stick on top and freeze overnight. Take them out and use as paintbrushes. It is a fun and easy activity for kids.

Tissue paper sun craft. Put glue on the medium or large template. Add small pieces of tissue paper to the sun template.

Make a sun sun catcher! You can cut out the outline of the sun. Then add a piece of contact paper to the back. Add small pieces of tissue paper to the sun. Then another pieces of contact paper to the top facing down. Cut off the edges along the black outline. Now you have a sun catcher!

Make a fun yellow sun! Use the template to trace on yellow paper. Kids can cut out the sun and add a cute face. Add googly eyes and draw a mouth on with black marker.

Use the template with a book about the sun for learning and craft projects. Place craft supplies in the center of a table and let kids craft away!
