Materials:

For the Sunflower Art for Kids, you only need 4 colors of construction paper!

Black (or Dark Blue), Yellow (two shades if you want variation), Green, Tan

Black or Dark Blue is the background on which you place the sunflowers.

Directions:

First, cut two- 4 inch squares, and four- 3 inch squares from the yellow.

Cut the corners to make a circle, draw a circle in the middle and draw the petals making sure they go out to the edge.

Next, cut out your sunflower. Don’t worry about the pencil lines. Just flip over and none will show.

Now, with the two cut-out sunflowers, glue together and bend out the petals to give it some dimension. Using a paper punch, make many tan seeds to glue in the middle. They can be glued on top of each other to give depth.

Did you know?

The center of the sunflower is actually made up of tiny individual flowers called florets. Each one produces a seed when pollinated.

The normal stem of a sunflower can grow up to 10 ft. tall and the flower can get to over 11 inches wide.  The tallest sunflower was grown in Germany and it reached 27 ft. tall

There are different varieties of sunflowers. Some produce a black seed that is used to make sunflower oil. The striped seed is used for eating and bird food.

Ok, enough facts! Now, get busy and have fun making Sunflower Art!

Enjoy!
