Sun Drawing Game
You will design a summer sun by rolling the die and collecting the different parts required to create it. First, trace the sun onto another sheet of heavy white drawing paper. Next, roll the die to select which face you’ll draw in the center of the sun. Roll the die three more times, drawing each selected pattern in two rays of the sun. Using washable markers, outline everything. Be sure to outline large areas where they meet parts of the design.
Dip a small brush in water and carefully smudge it in the marker lines to paint in the shapes. If you need to neatly add more “paint” to larger areas, smudge some marker on a scrap piece of paper and use that as a paint palette. Allow each area to dry slightly before moving on to a neighboring area of the design. When dry, cut it out. If you’re short on time, design directly onto the print out from page 4 and color with dry media such as markers, crayons, and colored pencils.
Simply print out the game and picture directions back-to-back, give them dice, and watch them have fun creating their own sun drawing. Once completed, use the writing prompts to connect literacy to your lesson.
