Spectacular Suns!

Day 3 of the week - The theme this week is Colorful Spring! Then letters of the week are r, V, v.
Project - Spectacular Suns- Sometimes you think that a project will turn out better than it actually does. This is one of those projects - oh well - the kids had fun painting the suns with forks! I guess if they enjoy the process of the project than that is all that matters!!! :) I found this project in the June/July 2009 issue of The Mailbox. Directions: Trace several circular lids in different sizes on white card stock. Use orange and yellow crayons to color the tracings. Then dip a fork in yellow paint and drag the back of the prongs outward over each sun to make rays. Sprinkle glitter over the wet paint.
Materials Needed - card stock, yellow and orange crayons, yellow paint, plastic fork, glitter, circular lids
