Fun Sun Papercraft

I just love bright and sunny days! They bring so much warmth and light. It makes the days even better for the kids to play outside and soak in the warm beams. Some days the sun just doesn’t want to come out and play, and those are the days where my kids love to make this Fun Sun Papercraft. That helps them bring the sunshine inside!

It is such a great way for them to get creative and have their own sun to play with and decorate with! My kids love to hang theirs in their windows so when the sun does shine the colors glow!

I just love crafts that help kids explore and learn about weather. It is always great when they are learning about the things that they are surrounded with each day. The weather brings a lot of great learning opportunities. I know that this Fun Sun Papercraft is so much fun for them because they get to personalize it and take it wherever they want! They will get a real hands-on experience with creating something that will bring light to their day! 

The sun is such a great figure to create with because you get to design its rays of light and even add a smiley face. Whether they create a Mr. or Mrs. Sunshine, they will create a great friend to make stories with. 

If you love the sun as much as I do and need something to brighten your kid’s day, try this Fun Sun Papercraft

How to Make a Fun Sun Papercraft

Green, blue, yellow, and red cut outs for the sun's rays
  • Step 1: cut four paper strips of each color to make the sun’s rays. Dimensions (3 inches of length).
The cutout rays, including the circle for the sun
  • Step 2: cut a big yellow circle that will be the sun’s face.
The rays are being attached to the body of the sun
  • Step 3: glue the strips two by two of each color, folding them in half repeating this in all perimeter.
The sun with the rays, eyes, and mouth attached
  • Step 4: print and cut the eyes and the mouth then glue them to make the sun’s face. If you want you can also draw it!

Now you have a really fun sun to play with!

Tips and Tricks

  • Colored construction paper. Making sure you have a lot of colors, they can make their rays of sunshine even more playful and exciting! 
  • Elmer’s glue. Elmer’s glue is the best kid friendly glue that works great with papercrafts.
  • Markers. If you have markers, it can sometimes be easier for younger kids to draw on the face rather than cut and glue smaller pieces. 

More Fun In the Sun!

It is so fun learning about the sun! You can make another little sun in these really cool Papercraft Weather Cards. They are really simple but so cute. You can even use the same supplies that you used in this Fun Sun Papercraft! They can place the cards wherever they want to continue learning.

The sun is such a great element for a kid’s room. It is full of bright colors and brings feelings of joy. One thing that is also something your kid will love in their room is a Sun Catcher. It captures the sun and the light illuminates all over the room. It shines so bright and kids love chasing the sparkles! 

Try getting a  Silicone Sunset Stacking Set. It encourages great motor skills and is also a super cute decoration to have around!
