What to do:
1) Paint the paper plate yellow on one side. Allow it to dry.
2) Make petal shapes on the backside of the paper plate and cut them out. For younger kids you can just cut slits to make it easier.
3) Crumble a small piece of brown construction paper and glue it in the center of the flower.
4) Glue a green straw or pipe cleaner to the back.
