Let the sun shine in your preschool classroom

After the paint dried, the children turned the plates over and added strips of orange and yellow crepe paper for the sun rays.

I noticed that some of the children grouped their crepe paper strips by color and some worked to create a yellow and orange pattern around the edges of their plate.

There were other sunshines made as well….
