This rainbow sun craft is a simple and fun way to learn about different colours. It is also great for developing fine motor skills and can be used as a letter craft for “S” (sun) or “R” (rainbow).
To start with, the children in my class painted half a paper plate yellow and added some gold glitter.
Once it was dry, they glued on some google eyes and used a marker to draw a face. After that they cut triangles around the edge of the plate to make the sun’s rays.
Lastly, the children turned their plates over, applied a strip of glue and attached a variety of coloured streamers.

Happy teaching :)
