Sunprints are 70’s goodness at it’s best! A wonderful easy and effective activity that floats somewhere between art and craft. Any age can enjoy this project, and the creative possibilities seem endless. Established as a company in 1975, Sunprints are one of those things that almost everyone says, “Oh yes I have done that” or “That looks cool, I want to try it”.  Not only are Sunprints super fun, but proceeds from the kit sales go towards a good cause.

“Originally developed as a teaching tool by educators at the Lawrence Hall of Science on the UC Berkeley campus, all proceeds from the sale of Sunprint Kits continue to aid the mission to inspire and foster the learning of science and mathematics for all.”

Sunprints really are easy, and while they are called Sunprints and it is nice to do them in the sun, you can actually expose them beneath specific electrical light sources as well. We made our prints using garden collected items, but you could use anything from keys, to dollies, to seeds and beans. The prints make a great gift to Grandparents!

A special thank you to our talented friend Dana Tanamachi  for making these Sunprints with us at our house!
