Putting together sunflower wall art for toddlers and preschoolers is one of our favorite fall activities.
We start by exploring sunflowers, adding sunflowers to various parts of our classroom, reading sunflower books, and even strengthening our fine motor skills with a sunflower sensory bin. What I love about this activity is that it is done by both our toddlers and our preschoolers. The bulletin board we display in the hallway represents both classrooms. Even though they didn’t work on this at the same time (they attend school on alternating days), the project connects them.
Sunflower Wall Art for Toddlers and Preschoolers
- Large petals cut from different pieces of fabric
- White glue
- Large black circles for the centers of the sunflowers
- Sunflower seeds (that we picked during our sunflower fine motor activity)
- Orange tempera paint
Cut a large circle out of black paper and roll glue across it. Then, sprinkle sunflower seeds on top and let dry.
- Cut yellow paper into large petals, scaled the same as the black circles
- Cut fabric (or scrapbook paper) into squares
