This pass week, here in Tucson we were over 105 all week, which makes it miserable to be outside for longer than its takes to get from the a/c in the car to the a/c in the house.
So to keep from going stir crazy we did tons of crafts this week.
We started with making a cute clothespin sun
in honor of the sunny Arizona.
Start off with just a plain paper plate.
And cut in half, or as close to half as you can get.
Than have the little ones paint each half yellow,
on the 'outside' of the plate.
(Side note: I love that when I bring out this tablecloth, the boys automatically know that we're going to be painting)
After the plates were dry (which took all of 5 minutes, in this heat)
We used tape to attach the ribbon to the plate.
On the other yellow half of the plate,
glue on two googly eyes and a smile.
I had already had some clothespin painted orange and yellow. I gave each one four or each color. So eight clothespins total.
Use a glue stick to attach your two paper plates halves together, and clip the clothes pins on the top (for the rays.)
I said it before and I'll say it again, I love easy peasy crafts.
Perfect for after school !
