  • Yellow Paint
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Paintbrush


  • 1 Doily
  • Card Pink, black and yellow


  • To make your doily sun start by painting your doily yellow. Of course you can buy yellow ones to start with but the paints I’ve used here dried really quickly. Rather than using normal kids poster paints I’ve gone for the super cheap kids watercolours you can normally pick up for a pound and you can change the shade of your sun from pale to bright depending on how much paint you use.

  • Next up cut out some strips of yellow card and once your doily is dry stick these around the edges of the sun to make it’s rays.
  • Once that’s done cut out eyes and a mouth from black card and some cheeks from pink card and stick those on too. Of course your sun doesn’t need little pink cheeks but I think it looks a lot cuter for having them!

If you haven't got any doilies or if you're worried that your child might tear them (they can be a bit flimsy) then simply swap this for a paper plate. If you're really stuck for materials then even a circle cut out from an old cereal packet would do!
