Sun Activities

Being there wasn’t much sun today, we found a way to have a sun-filled day regardless of the weather outside!  We sang songs about the sun, painted a sun, and created a sun puppet.

Sun Songs

I created a sheet with the different songs and finger-plays that we did today.  It helps to have them all in one place.

Sun Puppet

Materials: Construction paper, Glue, Tape, Crayons, and sticks

I cut out the sun for the kids and they glued the parts together.  Large googly eyes would work well with this craft, too.  Guide your child as they tape the stick onto the back of the puppet.

The kids had fun using their puppets as we sang Mr. Sun, Mr. Sun and during our other sun activities.

Counting /Number Recognition

Using some materials around the house, I put together this simple math activity for my three year old.    He had to place each sun above the number as he counted them.

Painting/ Color Fun

We reviewed the colors orange and yellow as we painted our suns today!  You can find this sun printable at

What a fun day!  The sun did eventually come out.  Just in time for our weather check.  Little man reported that the weather was windy and sunny.

Great ideas to include older children.

    What a great way to spend a rainy (or even snowy) day. I’ll have to remember this for next winter.
