Summer is in full swing for us. School is out and the pool is open. We’ve been soaking up the sun, swimming, eating popsicles, playing baseball, planning our summer travels, and doing lots of summer crafts. This Paper Plate Sun Craft is one of our favorite recent summertime crafts.
This sun craft is very similar to the Paper Plate Flower Craft we did a few weeks ago. Both crafts provide scissor practice and work on fine motor skills.
