This Handprint Sunflower Craft is a beautiful summer keepsake. It’s great for keeping kids busy, too, as they can get creative both their hands and fingerprints. We made one sunflower with my 11 year old daughter’s handprint and the other is my 2 1/2 year old son. It’s fun to see how much bigger her sunflower came out than his.
Sunflowers are my favorite kind of flower. I just love how tall and bold they are, definitely like bursts of sunshine in the yard. We planted our own this year, and I can’t wait for them to grow and bloom.
To make our Handprint Sunflower Craft you will need cardstock in yellow and green, acrylic paint in black and brown, scissors, and a glue stick. This is such an easy craft, great for little ones.
How to Make this Sunflower Craft for Kids
- Cardstock – yellow, green
- Acrylic paint – black, brown
- Glue stick
Begin by tracing the little one’s handprint.
You will need 4 handprints of the yellow paper. We folded the paper lengthwise and then that in half again to make 4 sections, then traced our handprint on the front. We were then able to cut out 4 at one time.
Also cut a handprint out of the green cardstock, as well as a long strip for the stem.
Glue the green handprint onto the stem.
Now glue one palm of one yellow handprint on top of another to form a flower shape.
Dip a fingertip into the black paint. Paint fingerprints in a circular pattern in the center of the sunflower. Add a few brown fingerprints, too, for dimension. Let the glue dry.
Glue the sunflower top onto the stem.
We hope you love this craft as much as we do! Be sure to see all of our fun summer crafts for kids at Our Kid Things!
