Make it Monday: Sunflowers

May 22, 2011 at 5:42 am Leave a comment

We took a little holiday… to the sunshine. That’s where I’ve been. But we’re back now and working feverishly on the gardens – warm temperatures and a bit of sun have arrived, hurray! I do have to update you on the bathroom and the hallways, so look for that in the coming days. In the meantime, I wanted to share this sunflower craft we made for Mother’s Day.

For this craft you will need,

  • 3 sheets of coloured paper – yellow (or more depending on the size your child’s hand)
  • one small paper plate
  • brown paint
  • approximately 1/3 cup sunflower seeds (with the shell)
  • white school glue
  • pencil, scissors and a paint brush

The first order of business is to paint the plate brown. Set it aside to dry. Fold a sheet of yellow paper into four. Trace your child’s hand on the paper. Once done, cut around the tracing. You should be left with four cut-out hands. Repeat this step with the remaining paper. You will need 12 hands in total. Glue the cut-out hands (petals) onto the back of the dried painted plate. Overlap the petals slightly to give the flower a full look. Turn over and spread a generous amount of glue on the painted paper plate, and have your child place as many sunflowers seeds on the plate as possible. Set aside to dry. If you want, you can add some magnets to the back so that it can be hung on the fridge.
