Direction to make the Fork-Painted Sunflower Craft

You have the option to create a Sun craft using either blue or white paper. We experimented with both colours, but we will be showing the Step by step process using white paper.

To begin, cut a circle with a diameter of approximately 5 to 6 cm and paste it at the centre of the paper.

Next, it’s time to start the fork painting. Dip the fork in yellow paint and press it onto the paper around the yellow circle.

Allow it to dry. Here is another Sun craft we created in a similar fashion on blue paper.

Although we initially thought that white paper would be the better choice, the blue paper resulted in a more vibrant sun after drying.

We recommend trying this fork-painted craft on blue paper.
