Learning about Solar Energy with Kids
The sun is a pretty amazing and powerful bundle of energy. It can turn your skin pink if you do not protect yourselves, it can make fabric color lighter if left on the clothes line too long, it heats things up, and it can even power homes.

Sun Activities for Kids Learning about Solar Energy
Let’s celebrate sunny days and the gifts that the sun’s energy gives us!!! What can you do???
1. Sun Prints
You could talk to your kids about the sun and have them make sun-prints. We used the solar sun print kit, but should have just bought the re-fill package ($5.99 vs $10.49) as we just used the paper.
2. Clothesline Fun
3. Experiment with Solar Powered Lights
Purchase solar powered outdoor lights for your home walkway. Have your kids help you install them!
4. Sun Craft
Make a craft sun and sing, “Oh Mister Sun” (Kim did this every year with her kindergarten class!)
4. Solar Powered Oven
5. Sun Shapes with Math
Connect the concept of the sun to your math lessons about shape, sizes, and colors. Make your own using pattern blocks (yes, you know we love these!)
