Help teach your little ones about the sun and moon, and how they look different, with this easy fun craft!!

Items needed:

1 Paper plate, per child


Yellow construction paper


Popsicle stick (optional)


On the front of the paper plate have them color the sun or cut it out of construction paper and glue it on the front.

On the back of the plate leave the very center of the back white and color the outer edges black.

Cut out stars on the yellow construction paper and then glue them to the outer rim of the back of the plate, so they know the moon comes out at night.

Glue the Popsicle stick on for a handle.

Then turn it back and forth asking them which is which and when it comes out.

You could also help them learn a little bit of a different language by saying the sun and the moon in the language you want them to learn.
