s is for sun

we were out of yellow and orange paper (such is the end of the school year) and instead of buying more, we made some.

yellow suns

we painted big sheets of yellow paper,

yellow days by you.

let them dry for two days,

yellow days

then used them to make suns.

we cut some of the paper into roundish shapes and some of the paper into rectangles.

yellow suns

some of the round shapes had the word “yellow” written on them.  you had to put one of those on the top.

yellow suns

some of the rectangle rays had names on them.

the trick was making sure to leave a space for the ray with your name on it!

the collage effect was stunning.

and again, they were proud to have “made” the yellow paper.

we change our water daily and add different things:

yellow food coloring

yellow paint (this makes an opaque yellow

apple scented bubbles

baby shampoo

and my favorite of the week:  banana extract

we also move the mirrors to different spots.  over the water table, next to it, one on each end, etc.
