31 Days of Smart Summer Fun, Day 24: Making Sun Prints

Ready for an easy art project today? We have just the thing for you!

Sun Prints

For this art project, you’ll need a sunny day, a few leaves (or other objects), and some construction paper. You can also buy special sun print paper at your local craft store, but we’ve found that inexpensive construction paper works just fine. Place a piece of construction paper in the sun. Have your child arrange leaves, sticks, keys, rocks, even plastic figurines on the paper. Leave the paper and objects out in the sun for an hour or two. The sun will fade the paper around the objects, leaving the area under the objects dark. The possibilities are endless, and the mess is minimal!
