Summer Sun Paper Plate Craft Puppet

Today we have a fantastic and fun Summer Sun Paper plate craft which I’m sure the kids will love to make at home or in the classroom setting. This is a simple and easy task and encourages fine motor skills, promotes colour recognition and the craft can be used as a puppet. It is a great preschool resource and could be used while singing a song about the sun or colours. There are lots of fun ways this can be used.
