Step 1: Gather and ready your materials
If your popsicle stick didn’t come green, grab your marker and go ahead and color it green.
Step 2: Trace your hands
You want at least 5 handprints, but you can add more depending on how full you want your flower to be
Step 3: Glue your cutouts
You’ll want to glue a hand on the top of the stick first and then add from there
The handprints will overlap – try to do this in a circular shape.
Step 4: Make leaves
Cut a rectangular strip off your green piece of paper and then fold it in half and cut a leaf shape. You can draw the leaf first if you’re more comfortable that way.
This should give you two leaves of the same size after you cut them out.
Step 5: Glue leaves
Glue the leaves near the bottom the popsicle stick.
Step 6: Cut out the center
Cut a rectangular strip of paper from your brown sheet like you did with the green.
Get a circular object to trace
Fold the piece in half and place the object on the edge to where it’s touching the crease
Trace the object and cut it out.
You want the side that was on the edge to still be attached so you can open and close the circle
Step 7: Draw seeds on the circle with a brown or black marker.
Step 8: Glue center
Glue this in the middle of the sunflower petals.
