We have had a blast with sunflower crafts. In fact, I would venture to say that we got a big carried away! Many of the sunflowers that we made were inspired by illustrations from various books about sunflowers. Check out some of the sunflowers that we made and the books that inspired us!!
This first sunflower was super easy to make. I cut out petals and the kids used brown paint to paint the bottom of a paper plate. They used q-tips and black paint to add the spots. This sunflower craft was inspired by the book The Sunflower Parable. We absolutely LOVED this book!!! It is about a little boy who hopes to grow sunflowers that reach to heaven. In the most simple, yet clever way the story explains our Father’s garden and the process of spreading His message. There is a Bible verse to correspond with each page of the book. We LOVE reading this book!
Our second sunflower was also inspired by The Sunflower Parable. However, we mad the flower a bit differently. Like before I cut the petals and the kids painted the paper plate brown. However, we used some bubble wrap and black paint to make a pattern on the plate.
