Flowers and gardens are some of my favorite storytime themes. I made these sunflowers using the sun pattern from some clip art I found online in shades of yellow and gold. I hand stitched a grid to represent the seeds.
Five Little Sunflowers
Five little sunflowers growing by my door,
I picked one for Grandma, now there are four.
Four little sunflowers, the prettiest I’ve seen,
I picked one for Grandpa, now there are three.
Three little sunflowers, just a lovely few,
I picked one for Mommy, now there are two.
Two little sunflowers reaching for the sun,
I picked one for Daddy, now there is one.
One little sunflower, a colorful little hero,
I picked it just for you! Now there is zero!
