We finally got round to completing our Sunflower Unit. The boys planted sunflower seeds in around September last year. By early December they were starting to flower. By the time we arrived home from our holiday, they were starting to die.
We took heaps of photos of these beautiful sunflowers as they grew. Here are some of them.
They were so big and bright!
We borrowed many books about Van Gogh from the library and the boys used oil pastels to draw their own sunflowers.
Then they made sunflower cupcakes pretty much on their own. They did use a cake mix. They measured everything they needed to put in, stirred and placed the batter into the cupcake containers. Even iced them themselves.
We bought a packet of sunflower seeds from Aldi and the boys tried them. They actually liked them!! But we then made sunflower butter (Sunflower Butter) out of some of the seeds. They didn’t like this at all. (And I have to say I agree with them on this one).
