Vincent Van Gogh does have dreamy paintings! See one of the most famous, his "Bedroom in Arles," now on view at the Detroit Institute of Arts, through May 28, 2013. This painting is our guest of honor and is shown alongside three of the DIA's paintings by Van Gogh.

3D plant diagram. Green straws make the stems and cupcake papers make the flower. Sunflower seeds are glued in the middle of the cupcake paper. I also had the kids break apart one seed and put part of the shell down in the soil to represent where the plant sprouted from. Any kind of seed could be used.
Parts of a flower.
Paper chairs...love for a Van Gogh activity.
