The process of making this sunflower craft is super simple and uses just three supplies you most likely already have right at home or in the classroom: paper, glue, and scissors.
To prep for the craft project, I first gathered our supplies:
- Yellow, green, & black paper (We used construction paper. Cardstock would work as well.)
Paper Sunflower Craft
First, we cut out a large circle from the yellow paper and a smaller circle from the black paper.
We then glued the smaller black circle to the middle of the yellow circle. This black circle would act as a guide when kids completed the next step.
We cut strips into the yellow circle to form the petals of our sunflower craft – making cuts all the way around the yellow circle.
Next, we cut a long stripe for the stem and two leaves from the green paper.
We glued the leaves to each side of the steam and attached the stem to the back of the yellow circle.
That’s it! Easy peasy.
To take learning one step further, discuss the parts of the sunflower: seeds, petal, stem, and leaves.
Or further your fine motor work using tweezers or tongs to remove the seeds from a real sunflower!
