Then, cut two to three leaves out of the green construction paper. If you are working with young children, you may want to draw the leaves on the paper and have them cut them out. Next, glue the leaves onto the craft stick.
Finally, glue sunflower seeds onto the center of the paper plate to make a sunflower seed craft.
This easy sunflower craft is perfect to make with toddler, preschool, pre k, kindergarten, and first grade students. I love that his simple flower craft for 3 and 4 year olds uses common craft supplies you most likely have laying around your house.

Extend The Learning:
While creating this flower craft, your child will work on developing their fine motor skills by painting and cutting, but you can also incorporate these learning activities too:
- Read informational books about plants and flowers. Your children can learn all about what a plant needs to grow and the parts of a flower.
- Plant sunflower seeds and watch the plant grow. We plant the seeds in cups first and then transfer them to the ground when it warms up outside. Have your children record their observations in a plant journal.
