3. Summer Sun Stories
I love reading to my children! Reading aloud is a great way to instill a lifelong love of books in your children.

5. Let Your Light Shine!
You can also use this sun template for Sunday school crafts! Print a paper sun template for every child in your class, then allow them to decorate as they like using lots of materials. You could use finger paint, markers, crayons, or even gold glitter.
While the children create their own beautiful sunshine, talk about how the sun gives us light. Explain to little ones that we have our own beautiful shining light too and it comes from Jesus! Remind children that we must let our light shine for Jesus.
To help them remember how important it is to be the light, teach children the classic song “This Little Light of Mine.”
Older children can even memorize the following bible verse: “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
