1. Paper Plate Sundial Sun Crafts
You need markers, a ruler, a white paper plate, and a hot-glue gun to craft this.
Use markers to draw anything of your choice — for example, a flower or a sun.
Locate the center of the plate using a ruler and mark it ‘’x. ’’ take about one tsp. of hot glue and place it over the mark. And then put the craft stick vertical to the glue and hold for about 30 seconds for the glue to set.
Write the hours of a clock on the outside edge, then look for a sunny spot and place the sundial. Your kids will be able to tell the time when they see the crafts stick shadow fall on the hour.
2. Sun Prints
Here is what you need: a tape, sheet pan, spray bottle, one black sheet of construction paper, 1Tbs of lemon juice, 1/2 cup water, and several objects.
Let your children collect some small items like small toys, plastic animals, and buttons. Tape the black construction paper on the sheet pan and arrange all the collected objects attractively around the paper.
Spray a mixture of water and lemon juice from the spray bottle over the objects.
Look for a sunny spot and place the sheet pan. The water and lemon juice combine to step up the sun’s bleaching abilities. Eliminate the small objects from the construction paper after some time to display a distinctive picture. There, you have your sun print.
3. Shadow Drawings Sun Crafts
You need a white sheet of drawing paper, a sheet pan, markers, pencil, and several small objects with interesting shapes.
Look for a sunny spot and place the object. Note where the shadow will fall. Take the sheet pan and put the paper on it directly under the shadow.
Outline the shadow carefully using the marker and then remove the paper. Transform the creation of the shadow by coloring in the outline and adding some details and background.
4. Sun-Dried Handmade Tiles
You need, a half cup flour, half cup water, three quarter cup salt, rolling pin, cookie cutter, rubber stamps, pencil, small objects, paintbrushes, sheet tray, and acrylic paints.
Create a mixture of salt, flour, and water in a bowl and mix for 2 minutes. Create the base of the tile by rolling the dough into a square. Create an impression by pressing the rubber stump, any small object or cookie cutter in the dough.
Add little details on the tile using the pencil. Place the tile on the tray after decorating it and place it in the sun for some hours for the tile to dry and then color it with acrylic paint.
5. Melted Crayon Window Hanging
You need a white paper sheet, pencil, metal pie pan, 12-inch string, cheese grater, 3 to 5 crayons, scissors, and a hole punch.
Create a pile of shavings by sharpening the crayons with different colors. Take the sheet paper and place the pie pan on it. Cut the circle rim and tape it inside the pie pan.
Randomly sprinkle the crayon shaving onto the paper and take it to the sun for the crayons to melt. Remember to shelter it from the wind.
Let the paper cool after the shavings have melted and then remove it from the pie tin. Punch a hole close to the circle’s edge and thread it with a string. Hand it on the window and let the colors of the rainbow display.
