Fourth grade Foil Aztec Suns

After a power point about Aztec suns and similar crafts from Mexico, students drew their own fancy suns. These were transferred to foil by tracing the design, while pressing firmly to"emboss" the image onto the foil.  a soft magazine was placed under the foil to add "give" to the embossing.The next step was to add the bright colors of the Mexican crafts we viewed. We used colored sharpies. Then the foil sun was glued to a background piece of construction paper and "embellished" with sequins and sparkly gems.
