Day 4 Poster
Have the children cut out a white moon (a quarter moon works best), yellow sun, and stars (tin foil or stickers) and glue them on black construction paper. (You can have the shapes drawn out before class so the children can cut them out.) Or you can give each child a piece of construction paper. Have the children draw a sun with a yellow crayon and color inside of it. Then have the children draw a quarter moon and stars with a white crayon filling each shape with white. The children will then paint over the picture with black water color (the wax in the crayons will repel the black paint and allow the drawings to show through).
