Cute Handprint Sunflower
Sunflowers are just like kids! They're bold, beautiful, and full of life. So what better theme to choose for our craft today than a beautiful sunflower? The best part? Each sunflower handprint craft is as unique as the child's hand that creates it!
Using a child's hand as a template, we create the flower petals of our sunflower. It's a great way to freeze a little moment in time. If only we could keep them this young and adorable forever!
A bonus of this craft is its educational element. While crafting, you can discuss the lifecycle of a sunflower, the importance of sunflower seeds, and the role of sunflowers in nature. Turn it into a mini, fun-filled, educational lesson!
These sunflowers are a perfect rainy-day activity. And they’re great for a craft session at daycare or school too! I don’t know a single kid that doesn’t love drawing their own hands. Is Mother’s Day coming up? Yeah! This craft is perfect for that too!

Easy and Fun Crafts for Kids
Crafting is all about creativity, and exploration, and is always loads of fun. Their little handprints form the bright yellow petals of the sunflower, while the center is created using black or brown construction paper.
We then add the sunflower stem and leaves, using green construction paper, to complete the craft. The result is an easy and fun handprint sunflower that pops off the page. They can put it in a card, hang it on the fridge, or mail it to grandma! Or all of the above!
Remember, this craft is meant to be a fun and joyful experience. Let your kids explore, and enjoy the process. They can work at their own pace, and don’t worry about making it perfect! The fun is in the creation. Don't forget, it’s also a wonderful way to combine art and learning. And who knows, it might even spark a love for gardening in your little ones.
This handprint sunflower craft is super fun, and easy, and makes for a beautiful keepsake. It's a craft that kids of all ages can enjoy. So go ahead, give it a try, and I know you’ll enjoy those bright colors just as much as I do!
