This activity exposes the child to tactile stimuli and works on cutting skills by creating a sunflower out of the child’s hand prints.
Let the child cut the following pieces:
– 4-inch circle out of brown or black construction paper
– Stem (12-inch by 3-inch rectangle) and leaves out of green construction paper.
Use a large construction paper as the background and glue the stem from the bottom up. Glue the leaves to the stem.
Paint the child’s palms with yellow paint and instruct him to print his palms on the top part of the paper to form the flower petals.
Glue the 4-inch brown/black circle in the middle of the palm prints.
