Sun and Moon Craft

by Hannah Holt »


What you’ll need

  • two white paper plates
  • yellow and blue tissue paper cut into 2″x6″ strips
  • markers
  • glue

Step 1: Using a black marker, draw a sun face on one plate and a moon face on the other.

Step 2: Color the rest of the sun plate orange and yellow. Make the moon plate yellow and blue.

Ste 3: Turn each plate over. Put a dab of glue on the outer edge of the plate. (We live by the rule, “dot, dot, not a lot.”) Attach a piece of tissue paper to the glue, yellow tissue for the sun and blue tissue for the moon. Continue around the outer edge of each plate until each plate has a tissue paper halo.

Optional activity: Mount the sun and moon to blue poster board. Add cotton ball clouds and silver stars stickers.

    “Dot, dot, not a lot” shall be my new mantra for PB writing. And pretty much everything else. Like the extra cheese I put on our pizzas.

    Adorable craft, Hannah! I pinned and tweeted it, just cuz you’re awesome. :)

    Fantastic! My three-year-old’s questions every sunrise and sunset is, “Is the sun coming up?” We talk about the Earth’s rotation constantly. We’ll do this craft.

    @Kirsten I hope enjoy the craft!
