1st grade Sunflower Pots

Sunflowers  - Vincent van GoghVincent van Gogh's sunflowers were the inspiration for this awesome twist on the usual pinch pot project. The pieces were glazed for the finishing touch and I will continue this great tradition - the brilliant inspiration came from my colleague at Mrs. Knight's Smartest Artists!!

Here is a group all bagged up and ready to go home.....I secretly love this part even though it takes about 20 minutes of my time during the art class to prepare. After each kiddo decorates a bag with line patterns using construction paper crayons, I scrunch a piece of tissue paper into the bottom and then pop in the sunflower pot with an art statement about the project for parents to read. The bags are tied with yarn. 


  1. Very cute and your wrap method is nice, too.

  2. Neat idea for wrapping them up! I bet they are so excited to take them home. :)

    1. Yes, Sara, you're right, they are so excited to take them home!! I actually let them have their pot at their seat while they decorate the bag because they just wanna love on it :)

  3. I am going to do this following our Sunflower still life lesson. So cool!
