Sun Prints1 piece of construction paper
various items that will lay flat on paper
Lay items on top of contruction paper (darker colors work best) for 1-4 hours. Remove items and see the prints left behind. Talk about how the UV rays from the sun cause a chemical reaction in which the dye in the paper breaks down and causes it to fade in the spots that were not colored.
|We taped the paper to the table to keep from blowing away as there was a slight breeze this day.|
|Choose items that are heavy enough, some of them did blow off during the 2 hours they were setting out.|
|All the prints with items removed.|
|This was a plastic dinosaur & a fish sand mold (that blew in to a different position than we had originally laid it in.)|
