I don’t know about you, but one of my weakness is a hand print craft. My kids are growing up so fast. I just love preserving some of their cuteness while they are young! This craft is a great one for fall. It’s simple and fun to do with the kids. Come on in and I’ll show you how I made this easy to make Sunflower out of a paper plate and construction paper.
Here’s what you’ll need for this craft:
- A small yellow paper plate – dessert size plate
- Hole punch and yarn, ribbon or rope
- glue that dries clear
- Sunflower seeds in the shell
- Yellow construction paper (about 4 sheets)
Extra stuff you might want:
- A cute green straw and a paper leaf
- Now…trace hands onto the yellow paper. I was able to get 2 hands traced on 1 piece of paper
- My short cut method to fast forwarding 8 cut out hand prints – If you can, stack the other 3 pieces of paper under the traced hand paper and cut out the hand shapes – you should end up with 8 hand prints
- Trim the handprints so the bottom of the palm is going straight across
- You can also grab your hole punch and punch a hole into the rim of the plate
- Pull your ribbon through the hole and tie a bow for hanging purposes
- Now, kids can spread glue all around the middle of the plate
- Then they should pour a bunch of sunflower seeds onto the glue and spread them out
- Next, add a strip of glue onto the back of each hand print and glue them around the rim
- Hang and enjoy!
- If you feel like it, add a cute straw and a paper leaf to embellish your sweet sunflower even more.
