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.
