For this craft project, I wanted to create something that a family or classroom could hang up starting at the beginning of the Season of Easter and leave up all the way until Pentecost. The fourteen stations of Light made for great sun rays, I added a quote that I love about Easter from soon-to-be Saint JPII on the base of the sun, and we had a perfect sun rise. Each of the rays also has a corresponding Scripture verse, so your family/classroom can look up that story as you talk about the station during Easter.
I decided to jazz up the background a bit, but you certainly could just glue the sun on normal large 12"x18" construction paper or poster board. If you are looking to get an art project out of this too, here is an idea.
The printables at the end of the post
A large piece of construction paper, cardboard, or poster board
Markers and crayons
Glue (preferably liquid, not glue sticks)
Hold the cardboard with the long side going horizontal (bathtub style in my classroom). Start making a scribbly half circle with yellow marker. No pattern, just gentle arcs scribbled in. This works for kids of all ages.
Arrange the rays in order (they are in order on the paper, so cutting them out one at a time is good, or you can use the Way of Light book to help.
