June Solstice Sun Print Art

Solstice art

Help your child to celebrate the June Solstice with a sun-centered art activity! Marking the official start of the summer, the solstice happens when the sun moves directly over the Tropic of Cancer. Explore sun science with an art project on the solstice day. Use the natural light to create sun-soaked nature prints with your kids.

Materials:

  • Dark-colored construction paper
  • Leaves, flowers or other natural objects
  • The sun

Instructions:

  1. Pick a few natural objects. Go on an outdoor scavenger hunt, collecting leaves in different shapes and sizes, flower petals, stones or twisty twigs.
  2. Place the paper in a sunny spot. Use a dark color of paper for this project. A light color won’t show the fade (that the sun causes) noticeably enough.
  3. Put the natural items on the paper. Your child can place them randomly, make a pattern, create a design or even spell out a word (such as sun or solstice).
  4. Let the sun do the work. As the sun shines on the construction paper it will fade the color, expect for what’s hidden by the natural materials.
  5. Keep checking on the sun print paper. As the day goes on the sun moves position in the sky, meaning that the paper may not be in the direct light. If needed, move the paper so that the light is back on it.
  6. Remove the objects to reveal the prints!
