This is an easy craft for all skill levels. Younger kids may need more of moms help and prep.
- 2 Circles (I used a circle punch and poster board you can use whatever you have on hand just make sure it is sturdy enough to hold the glue & lentils)
- Crepe Paper
- Lentils (beans), noodles or seeds (We didn't have any sunflower seeds on hand)
- Large Popsicle Stick
- Extras: foam or paper leaves, paint for Popsicle stick, rimmed cookies sheet, wax paper, paint brush for glue
Working on a rimmed baking sheet covered with wax paper makes for easier clean up and keeps the stray lentils on the tray instead of all over the floor & table. Squeeze or brush glue onto circle. Sprinkle lentils onto circle. We went back and squirted more glue on top so all the lentils would stay stuck.
Cut out small sections of crepe paper fringe. I folded the crepe paper over on itself several times, fringe cut it then cut into small sections. Older kids can do this step. They can even make the fringe look more petal like.
Glue second circle. Have child place fringe pieces around edge. Adding more glue as needed. We did several layers to create a fuller look.
Squeeze glue onto last layer of fringe. Place the first circle on top of the second. Let dry over night.
Meanwhile, you can paint a large Popsicle stick and add leaves if you like. Glue sunflower to stem. Let dry.
We hurried up this step - so the glue (as you can see) is not dry.
