Crafting With Sun Prints

Here’s a lesson in just how powerful mother nature is. An hour in the sun at noon and the kids will see how  Crafting with Sun Prints on simple construction paper can make a beautiful design.


Construction Paper
(Darker Colors}
Leaves or Object (Flat items Work Best)
A Sunny Day


To start Crafting with Sun Prints, lay construction paper outside in the sun. Arrange items on the paper so their silhouettes will look nice.

Wait about an hour and remove the items. You will see the paper has faded around the objects.

Be sure not to be tempted to peek ahead of time, because it will be almost impossible to position the items exactly the way they were.
