sunflower craft

Last year and this year, we have tried to host a sunflower day, but we always seem to have it a bit too late in the season.  Well, we know for next year.  Last year I was able to get a large sunflower head and let the kids dig the seeds out.  This year I had a craft.  I had the shapes already cut out for the kids.  We had them all glue the pieces to a white sheet of paper.  We then drizzled some Elmer's glue over the yellow circle and had the kids smear it with their fingers (make sure to have wet wipes on hand for easy, quick clean up!).  The kids were each given a handful of dry black beans to then sprinkle over the glue.  They thought that was the best part!

The two stories we read were:
