Celebrate the Winter Solstice:Handprint Sun Craft

We talked about the winter solstice with Defne last week. Here in England, days are really short during December. It gets dark around 4 o'clock,even earlier if it is a rainy or cloudy day.

I explained Defne that days are shorter in winter. She can recall that days are longer and sunnier during the summer months. I told her that after the 21st of December, the days will start to get longer and soon spring will be here. To celebrate the solstice, Defne made a lovely handprint sun.
