Things you can do with the sun templates and outlines
Try one of these fun ideas for using the free printable suns –
1 – Hanging mobiles. By cutting the sun shapes out and attaching them to string and some sort of stick you can make some very nice summer-themed mobiles. You can even use one of the suns as a part of a solar system mobile.
2 – Coloring and painting. The printable can be easy projects for young kids who are just learning to use colored pencils and paint. They can also be used to teach shading colors.
3 – Collages. Try cutting out pictures, small pieces of colored paper, or other objects and sticking them inside the sun shapes. You can come up with some really neat designs.
4 – Wall murals. Color, cut out, and stick several suns to a wall for a cool-looking mural. This is another great summer activity.
5 – Drawing and writing. Many of these pictures have a lot of space in the middle that can be used to draw in or write a simple short story or poem.
6 – Stencils. Cut out the sun outlines to make simple stencils that can be used to create the shape of the sun anywhere you like.
