Fall Gardens: Sunflowers

For the next two weeks we are going to learn about gardens, flower and vegetable.  We are going to plant some herbs, paint with veggies, grow a potato plant, read some great books, play fun garden games and make some beautiful art!  I tried to make it a "fall" type of garden week, but here in the desert we can plant just about anything in the fall. :)  Here are our sunflowers!

Step 1: Trace petals, cut them out

Step 2: Glue the petals to a large lid (I'm a hoarder of lids!!)

Step 3: Glue sunflower seeds to the center!

Step 4: We used chopsticks and dowels colored green for the stem. Ta-da!


I'd love to hear what your thoughts are...leave a comment! :)
