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.

What You Will Need
Let’s Make It
For the eye pupils, cut out 2 quarter-size circles from the dark blue paper.
Glue each pupil onto each eye and set aside.
For the nose, cut out a quarter-size heart shape from the red construction paper. Cut out a large mouth from the black construction paper. Cut out a smaller shaped mouth from the pink construction paper and glue on top of the black mouth.
Apply glue from the glue stick on the backside and place in the middle of the paper plate, underneath the eyes.
Cut out three (1 1/2″ wide by 5″ long) strips from each of these coloured papers: yellow, red, green and blue.
Glue the strips in the following order: yellow, red, green and blue. Repeat twice.
OPTIONAL: if you would like to use this sun craft as a puppet, tape a craft stick onto the back of the sun, towards the bottom.
