Crafting the Paper Plate Sun
- Begin by painting the plate with the yellow and orange craft paint.
- With the paint still wet, collage the pieces of yellow and orange tissue paper onto the wet surface. (Students can scrunch the pieces if they desire.)
- Finally, use glue to attach the strips of yellow construction paper to the outside edge of the plate - creating rays.
