    To make your sun and moon myth fan, sketch a sun with Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils on a recycled file folder (or use a paper plate). Experiment with different faces and try unusual shapes for the sun’s rays. Use Crayola Twistables® to color your sun with bright, warm colors such as yellow, orange, and red.

    With Crayola Scissors, cut around your sun. Trace the outline on another file folder. Sketch a crescent moon, or any other moon stage you wish, within the outline. Add a face and other details such as stars and comets. Use cool Twistables colors, such as green, blue, and purple to create a moody, cool moon. Cut out your moon.

    Use Crayola School Glue to glue the sun and moon together, back to back. For the fan handle, slide a craft stick between the two layers before the glue dries. Air-dry your fan. For more fun, add patterns or designs to the fan handle. Stay cool!
