    The sun isn't shining anymore

    Sitting on the lower steps of the patio while pretending to drive, a child says, "I don't like the sun on me. I'll go to the back seat." He then climbed up on the upper steps. Later on, he said, "The sun is not shining anymore, I'll go back to the front".

    What he meant was that the sun is not shining on the the lower steps anymore. What's a good way of saying that? The sun isn't on the front seat anymore?

    Not a teacher.

    Yes. It's a pretend car, so it's a pretend front seat. You could also say:

    The sun isn't shining there anymore.
