Y Week- Yellow Sun

Today my kids and I are working on a new decoration for my classroom door. I only had 5 students today but I wanted as many kids as I could to participate in the door decoration.

What you'll need:
  • Orange and Yellow paint
  • A large piece of paper
  • Tape
  • Paint Smocks
What to do:
  1. Take the large paper, roll it out over a table and tape it to the underside of the table.
  2. Give each child a spot at the table to try and maintain a little organization.
  3. Dress each child in a smock this WILL get messy.
  4. Squirt a small amount of paint in front of each child and let them fingerpaint the whole paper, they'll love it!
  5. Find a place where something this large and this wet can dry.*

When this is dried I will cut a large circle out of it to make the center of the sun. Later in the week I am going to make orange and yellow handprints for each child to surround the sun. Since I didn't use construction paper I may have to glue it to a harder surface or laminate it. Each child's handprint will have their names on it and voila! Pop it onto the front door! I know this may not make sense click here to see the finished product!

*Note: be careful when transporting something this large and wet it rips very easily if you don't use construction paper.
