**In some of the pictures you will notice handprints instead of suns because I love any craft with my kiddos handprints, but because it didn’t look as sunny as I would have hoped, I switched to a sun cutout during the craft–you choose which one you like :).**


Make a frame by cutting out the inside of the black paper. Then cut a sun and clouds out of black paper. I used the leftover paper from the frame so I didn’t have to use a new piece of paper. Kids can help cut out the sun and clouds if they are able to use scissors.

2.  Cut out a piece of contact paper that is larger than the hole in the frame and attach it to the frame with tape. Stick the sun and clouds on the contact paper.


Give kids tissue paper and have them rip small pieces and stick to the contact paper. My kids loved this part When they are done decorating, trim any excess tissue paper off the edges and hang their artwork in a window. When the sun hits it the colors seem to melt together and glow!
