Crafting the Paper Plate Sun

  1. Begin by painting the plate with the yellow and orange craft paint.
  2. 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.)
  3. Finally, use glue to attach the strips of yellow construction paper to the outside edge of the plate - creating rays.
