In science this week we've been studying the sun. And I remembered back in the day I bought the Girl some sun print paper. I managed to find it (yes!) but it said it should be used within 6 months. Hmm...
So I took out one sheet and threw some sharpies on it.
Ha! Like 8 years later and still good!
Alright then, let's make some sun prints! Though the packaging said 'Nature Prints'... we only printed toys. Toy prints.
If you've never done this, it's really easy and fun. You just set stuff out on the special paper,
Let it expose for a minute or two, and when you take the stuff off, you will see their shadows.
But wait! Then you rinse it in water for a minute and the shadows disappear.
Until they start drying. Then the shadows turn white instead of dark. It's cool.
So here's how that bionicle/hero factory/whatever one turned out:
The Redhead wanted to do very simple stuff with his playmobil guys.
Whereas I was like 'Throw on all the things!'
Playmobil (the discolored spots are from water pooling as it dried... I wasn't too careful, but they're supposed to dry flat and I don't know a good way of not letting it happen anyway!).
Lego! Check out the headless minifig, ha!
I am fascinated by the detail this paper picks up. Below you can see a closeup of the clear magformers.
Bonus points if you can guess what this last one is! You might have to be a long-time reader or know us in real life to get it.
