Crafting with kids is super fun and time well spent. Here is another cute craft idea you can try with your kids. This craft is easy, doable and for keeps!
Kids Crafts – DIY Sunflower
Here are the materials you would need:
1. Yellow colored craft paper
3. Googly eyes
4. Green pipe cleaner
6. A small bowl (to cut out the circles)
7. One coin
Step 1: Place your bowl or any other circular object on the paper and draw a circle. Each circle will make a flower. Cut out as many as you’d like!
Step 2: Now, take a coin and use it to draw a smaller circle at the center of the larger circle. To find the center of the circle, fold the paper over itself 2 times (this will now look like a quarter circle). The smaller circle will act as a guide when we start cutting out the petals. Next, use your scissors and cut along the folds as shown in the picture.
Step 3: Now cut out evenly spaced ‘petals’. Look at the picture above for reference.
Step 4: Here is the completed circle when all the petals are cut.
Step 5: Now, carefully lift/fold up every alternate petal and gather them at the center.
Step 6: Now use a pipe cleaner to carefully tie all the gathered petals. This is the stem of the flower. Once done, you can trim the excess paper.
Step 7: Now use the same coin to cut out another circle. Draw a cute face, glue googly eyes and draw a big smile!
Step 8: Once done, glue the ‘face’ to the center of our flower! You can place these in the pencil/pen stands on your kid’s tables.
