Miracle of the sun spinner

This week we read about Our Lady of Fatima.

Today, October 13, is the anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun witnessed by 70,000 people.

Catholic Icing had this neat craft to commemorate the day.

All that you need is a circle of foam board, markers, and string or embroidery floss.
Simple color your "sun" on both sides of the circle.
Attached the string and make your "sun" dance.
All the information to make these is on the Catholic Icing site. (I wouldn't want to claim this is my own---because I would have never thought of anything like this)

Gracie making her "sun" takes a while to get the hang of it, but eventually, even the little kids were able to spin their suns.

Thank you so much for sending me this link! I love the "suns" they colored- very creative! And I'm glad to see that the spinning went well. He looks so excited about it! This link really made my day :-)

Hi there! I am visiting via ABC 123 - this is a lovely idee that brought back memories of little wooden whizzies my grandfather made for us when we were children, that worked in the same way. We also used to colour them with rainbows! Lovely blog!
