Sun Craft

It's hot.

Over 100 degrees every day. We haven't been getting out much - other than to take a dip in a pool or get some groceries so I've been keeping Noelle busy with crafts inside.

Noelle loves to do anything with paint and I'm a sucker for hand tracing so this was a great activity for us to do together.

Yellow craft paper
Paper Plate
Yellow finger paint
paint brush (or just use fingers)

 First Noelle painted the paper plate yellow

While the plate dried I traced her hand 7 times and cut them out.
Meanwhile she practiced using her scissors.

"Mom look! I made silly pants!"
I think I may have a fashion designer on my hands.

Then Noelle glued the palm of the hands to the back of the plate to create sun rays.

And she gave her sun a smiley face.

While we were crafting our sun I talked to Noelle about the Creator who crafted the real sun.
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
Gen. 1:3
