Fun Day Monday

The sun may have disappeared outside but here at my childminding service we have been making our own big sun to cheer us up on rainy days!

We made our sunbeams together as a colour matching activity and then put them all together to make our cheery sunshine.

If you want to have a go at making your own sunshine with your little one you will simply need:

  • A paper plate
  • Yellow card
  • Orange card
  • Scissors
  • Scraps of yellow foam, paper and card
  • Scraps of orange foam, paper and card
  • Glue stick
  • Yellow paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Apron

and all you need to do is this:

  • Firstly get your little one to paint the paper plate yellow all over and then put to one side to dry
  • Cut the yellow and orange card into strips
  • Give your little one the strips, the glue stick and the scraps of foam, paper and card and get them to colour match the scraps to the strips and stick them on
  • Once the strips have dried you simply stick them onto your paper plate to make your sunshine and put it up on the wall to brighten up ¬†your room.
