Parts of a Flower Science, Fine Motor, and Craft

Children will learn the parts of a flower and hone their fine motor skills while making this beautiful suncatcher craft with common flowers from the garden. Your children (and everyone else) will love seeing their suncatchers hanging in the window, on the wall, or from the ceiling. NOTE: This would also make a great Mother's Day gift.

What you need:
Cut flowers (most types of daisies, roses, pansies, sunflowers, and geraniums are safe)
Small pie tins or paper plates

Take flowers and cut off stems. Place the flower parts in the middle of a table with five small pie tins or small paper plates.
