Coming up with new and exciting art projects for children can be difficult, and let’s face it, there is only so much glitter you can face vacuuming up…
However, with sun art paper you can make fascinating creations that not require glue, glitter or any scraps of paper to dispose of.
All you need is a sunny day and some water!
This amazing paper uses the sun to create a picture not unlike a photograph negative, it’s great fun to experiment with different items such as feathers, twigs, flowers, leaves, cardboard shapes, and even lacy fabrics – anything that will leave an interesting outline or pattern on the sheet. Just simply arrange on the sheet until you’re happy with the pattern and then cover with the acrylic sheet provided, which will keep everything in place whilst the magic happens.
You can create different shades on the paper too, the longer you leave your paper in the sun the darker the outlines will be. You can also create a layered effect by moving your items around the paper from time to time to resulting in different levels of shading.
Incorporate the seasons with the Sun Art Paper by searching the backyard for seasonal flowers or wonderful fall leaves.
The Sun Art Paper can also be used to create amazing snowflake designs which would be perfect as part of your Christmas decorations. Simply cut out snowflakes and place them on the paper and leave in the sun for the desired length of time.
The finished art projects can be mounted and displayed or put into a scrap book. If you do choose to hang your Sun Art on the wall then be sure to place it out of direct sunlight.
