You are my sunshine craftDLTK's Crafts for Kids
You Are My Sunshine Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

I've had a lot of positive response from people about this craft.  Although it was originally made for mother's day, here are some alternate ideas I received from people who used the site:

Although meant to be a fridge magnet, if you don't have magnet backings, don't worry about it too much.  Use the craft for a card, make a collage/picture from it or just as individual pictures to hang up.  I'm sure everyone will love it no matter how the kids present it!




When the children give the gift, make sure they sing!


You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy
When skies are grey
You never know dear
How much I love you
So please don't take my sunshine away!

(substitute the teacher's name  for the word DEAR in the third last line)

There are more words to the song, but this is a good length for younger children.
