    Cut Out the Flower Petals

    Step One for Tissue Paper Sunflower Craft

    • First, color your craft stick green.
    • Then, use your scissors to cut out sunflower petals in various sizes from yellow tissue paper. You will want a bunch of them, as each child will layer several onto their craft. We used 20 to 30 petals per sunflower. Let your preschoolers cut them out themselves–using scissors is a great fine motor activity for kids.

    • Layer your flower petals around the flower center, adding more glue as needed.
