Inside: This collection of preschool spring activities is all about flowers! Each idea includes lots of hands-on exploration and learning opportunities. Perfect for your spring theme!
I get so giddy when spring arrives! After a winter of little color, it’s hard not to be delighted with the beautiful flowers that adorn our neighborhoods. We love to explore color this time of year, so putting together preschool spring activities using flowers is so fun!
There are so many learning opportunities using flowers, too. We make sure to have vases of real flowers in our science area and we will grow our own as well. Along with exploring live flowers and planting our own from seeds, we read various flower books, create flower art, as well as other hands-on flower activities. My spring and gardening Pinterest boards are packed with ideas, but I thought I’d share some favorites on my blog for easier reference.
