S is for Sunflower

Sunflowers are in full-bloom here.  So yesterday I took the boys out to a nearby field to take some pictures!  My mom came along to help pry some smiles and she suggested we pick several sunflowers to make a “Sunflower S.”

We put the flowers between 2 pieces of waxed paper and under several cookbooks overnight.

1.  One the flowers are pressed, cut out an “S” from construction paper.

2.  Let your little one add glue where he/she wishes for the flowers to be.

3.  Add the flowers.

4.  Since we didn’t have enough sunflowers to completely cover the “S”, we decided to add sunflower seeds. 

Lining the sunflower seeds up on the line of glue was great fine motor practice!

And here are some of the pictures of my little loves…
