Easy Sun Craft Ideas

Here are some inspirations on how to use our free sun cut out templates for your next sun activity.

Small Sun Templates

Our small sun templates are perfect to use as stencils, or for patterns.

I also love to apply them to birthday gifts in the summer. I let my kids, cut and color them then we wrote the name of the birthday child on them. It always gives the wrapped gifts a personal touch.

But be aware the smaller templates are harder to cut out for younger children.

Medium Sun Templates

Our medium printable templates of the sun on the other side make adorable sun note cards. All you have to do is to print and cut out our sun templates. Let your children color them nicely and write cute sun quotes for your kids on the back.

I picked a couple of sun sayings for your kids. I hope you like them.

Large Sun Templates

My children love to use our large sun printables like coloring pages.

We love to color the sun bright with yellow and orange crayons and decorate them nicely afterward. For decoration, we use all kinds of craft materials we can find in the house, such as pom poms, googly eyes, glitter, stickers, craft sticks, q-tips, etc.

Sometimes the kids like to give their sun pictures of silly faces, draw big eyes or sunglasses, or even make some out of paper for her.

My kids also like to experiment with different crafts and painting techniques. The other day we used the large sun coloring sheet and used bubble wrap to decorate it. It is super easy. Take a look here at the Bubble Wrap Technique.

What is also pretty cool is to paint with an old toothbrush. It is super easy. Learn everything about the Toothbrush Spray Technique here.

As you can see the large sun is not only geared to younger children and still can bring a lot of fun. Nevertheless, it makes a perfect preschool sun template.

If you have a small toddler, simply let them Cut and Paste. Find out how it works here.

Sing about Sunshine

Do you go to storytimes in the library and remember how the teacher always sings songs, does a show and tell, and does crafts? You can do that at home too.

Cut out our sun pages and sing the song “You Are My Sunshine” with your children. Afterward, let them decorate their own suns.
It is the perfect group activity and is prepared fast. All you need is your sun printouts and some coloring markers and your children are good to go!

For this activity, it might be a good idea to find the song on your playlist too, that way the children can listen to it first and sing it together afterward.

If you have some musical instruments at home, include those as well. The kids will have a blast!

Weather Crafts

Our sun printouts are an ideal addition to every weather project. For example, use our small sun printables and create your own weather chart.

Use this chance to talk with your child about the weather today and teach them how to dress accordingly.

By the way, you can easily use our Cloud Printables, Rainbow Outlines, and Umbrella Templates for your weather chart as well. Or use our Weather Chart template instead.

Solar System Crafts

The sun is the center of our solar system. Without the sun we wouldn’t exist. Our sun cut outs are perfect to teach about the solar system and learn more about our beloved sun.

As you can see there are endless possibilities on how to use our free sun printables. You can easily gear them for children of all ages and use them at home or in the classroom.
