Supplies To Make A Sunshine Wand

How To Make A SunShine Wand
Cut little triangles out all around the edge of your plate to make the sun’s rays. I think it’s a lovely activity for children to try to do themselves and it doesn’t matter if the triangles end up different shapes and sizes. If you’re wanting a very uniform look then you could always draw lines for the child to follow along with their scissors. We used some children’s zigzag scissors which gave a nice looking wavy edge.
Paint your plate a bright sunny colour. We chose yellow but your little one might like orange or maybe pinks like a sunset?
Once the paint has dried children can have fun making their sunny face. We used a sharpie to draw on eyes and a big smile and then glued on sequins around the edge. We adore these sequins from Baker Ross because they’re much bigger than standard sequins so they’re easier for little fingers to manage and they come in a heat selection of bright colours too.
Now you need a handle for your wand so use sticky tape to attach your stick to the back of the paper plate. We used a plastic coated bamboo cane we had floating about in the garden but any robust stick would do or even a wooden spoon.
Lastly tie the ribbons onto your stick to make wonderful bright tails to swirl around. We had a great visit to our local Scrap Store last week and got a whole bag of ribbons for vitally no cost. Perhaps you have one near you?
Now children can have fun using their sunshine wand to spread a little magical happy sunshine around everyone.
