Summer is Here! Solstice Sun Puppets

Solistice is almost here... whether you are ready or not, here comes the sun!

Create some sun finger puppets to celebrate?  These were for the last day of third grade...

Check out this darling felt solstice craft idea from Twig and Toadstool

What kid wouldn't have fun with a summer solstice wand via the tutorial at Natural Kids

For the sweeter treat, taste of home has a cute sun cupcake idea...

I would have a harder time passing up Becky Charm's Lemony Lemon Brownies though! 

And don't forget a story or two! Sunbread, by Elisa Kleven, is sweetly illustrated and comes with a real recipe at the end:

 Or this magical Swedish tale from Elsa Beskow.  Did the sun lose it's egg, like an egg from a bird?

We liked this one, found at our library, about a Cranky Sun that refuses to go down until a boy has a kind conversation with him.
