These free printable sun templates are perfect for summer craft ideas, kindergarten projects, solar system crafts, lessons about the weather, and more!
When I create free printable shape and object templates, I tend to get really excited and create a whole bunch of different sizes. These sun printouts are no exception. I couldn’t make just one size of sun for you. I created small, medium, and large suns as well as a sun with sunglasses, a cute sun, and yellow sun templates, too. I hope you enjoy!

Sun craft ideas & sun activities:
The sun printouts are great for a variety of crafts from children as young as toddlers all the way on up. Here are a few ideas to get you started!
- Grab small, blunt-tipped scissors and have your preschooler or kindergartener practice their fine motor skills by cutting out a sun
- Use the printables as tracing sheets to help your child develop their fine motor skills and pencil grasp
- Make a sun stencil by cutting the sun out of the printout
- Make a sun-shaped sun catcher
- Use the yellow sun stencil or yellow cardstock/construction paper and a dowel to make a sun stick puppet
- Use the template as a pattern to make sun felt shapes for a felt board
- Stick puppets and felt pieces make great complements to story time when you read a book about the sun or weather
- Make a solar system craft using this sun template and free printable circle templates to make the planets (Learning about the solar system? Be sure to check out this outer space bingo game!)
- Use the large sun template as a sun coloring page for a unit on weather
