After we made the “Little Hands Can Change The World” handprint craft for Earth Day I knew I wanted to create another one for the fall. I love sunflowers in the fall so this craft was fitting for our family.  The child’s little fingers as sunflower petals and fingerprints for the seeds create a beautiful keepsake. I love the bright colors that this printable has and you could even include a package of sunflower seeds if you were making this as a gift! 

Last week my little one asked to do a craft project with me, and how could I say no? This easy handprint sunflower craft was so fun to make with him and he was so proud to gift this to his Nana. It was such a fun craft for a rainy morning and we love making crafts of things we see in nature so this was a perfect craft for us!

Handprint crafts are one of my favorite things my kids bring home from school. There is something so sweet about the child’s small hands on a piece of paper and it is a great way to remember these days with little ones at home. This easy craft is great for young children and is a perfect project to welcome the fall season.
