Today's Wonderful Wednesday will be done in two separate posts, since we had two projects. So this is Part 1 of 2. The first project we tackled was an artistic rendition of the sun. This project was beautiful, had a sensory component and fun to do for the kids. It went with our memory work for science regarding the sun.
The supplies you need are as follows:
* Black poster board (cut in half)
* White poster board (cut into circles)
* Paint in red, orange and yellow colors
* Q-tips for painting
* Plastic wrap
* Label of the parts of the sun -if you want one (optional)
The first thing you do is take your circular poster board piece (white) and lay it out in front of your child. Give them yellow, red and orange paint and have them squeeze out blobs of it around the circle in a random fashion. Next you will take plastic wrap and place it over the top. Then have them squish and squeeze until they have it mixed to their satisfaction and artistic liking.
