Enjoy this fun hand print craft. This is great for a Summer project or use it to brighten your spirits on a gloomy day!

  • Age Guideline: 3 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.


Materials Needed:

Start out by painting or coloring the paper plate yellow. This will be the sun's face so you can paint either the back of the plate or the front, which ever you choose! Set it aside to dry if necessary.

Trace 6 hand prints onto yellow or orange construction paper. Cut them out.

Put a little bit of glue on the bottom edge of the palm of each hand print and press them onto the edge of the non-painted side of the paper plate. Spread the hand prints out so they fit all around the paper plate. Let the glue dry.

As a finishing touch, draw or paint a face on your sun. Now you can hang it up, or even attach it to a craft stick or dowel and use it as a puppet!
