THANKSGIVING SUNFLOWER - WE THANK GOD


Children's Bible Lesson Support for Thanking God: Sunflower Craft

Thanksgiving Sunflower - We Thank God

Big, sturdy, colorful Thanksgiving table center decoration to show thankfulness throughout the meal. Or really spectacular on the refrigerator! This is an easy craft.

Blank petals give the children an opportunity to think about what they are thankful for and add them to the colorful fall sunflower. The petals are NOT all the same, so cutting mistakes will not matter a bit!

Since the sunflower has blank petals, it is also adaptable to short Bible verses and other prhases.

Psa 107:8, 1Ch 16:4, 1Ch 29:13, Col 1:3

- You can glue on one petal at a time, or put glue on all the places it says to glue at one time.
4. Place a petal over a glue stem so the brown of the petal matches the brown of the flower center - Anyone they want in any order if they have NOT added the words yet. IF THEY HAVE ADDED THE WORDS, Then watch the order in which they are glued to the center. Continue until all the petals are glued onto the center.

TEACHER: If any major cutting error occurs, just use clear tape on the back of the flower to fix it.

The blunt end of the petal color should be the same color as the flower center. Do not color on the glue stems.
