Verse: This is the day that the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
Time: 20 minutes
Turn iron on hot and place out of reach of children. Read the verse and discuss what it means to rejoice and who made this day. The sun is a sign that we have a new day to rejoice in Him. Then cut the middle of each paper plate out. Write on the front paper plate edge the verse in marker. Rip 2 pieces of wax paper the size of the paper plate. Place one hand towel down on a flat surface then place one sheet of wax paper then let child arrange crayon shavings in the shape of a sun. Place second wax paper carefully on top then carefully place the second hand towel. Press hot iron firmly on the hand towel until crayons melt (only need a minute or less to melt the crayon shavings). Turn off and set iron out of reach of children. Then have the child place the wax paper between the paper plate edges gluing it all together including the yarn/ribbon on it to hang. Cut off any access hanging wax paper and hang on or near a window to see the light. During morning time refer to the art work and repeat the verse to your child and rejoice!!! :)
