Summary:


Hello spring!! So we’ve been enjoying spring themed preschool activities around here (see our Nature Cutting Tray) when I was struck with inspiration to extend the activity for my kids- sorting the freshly dissected parts of a flower! This activity is a total two-for-one win because in preparing one activity, you can get another one out of it. Maybe even a third if you set aside flowers for this Invitation to Draw Spring Plants!

Summary:


In the Spring it is always fun to do some seed explorations with kids. Today I have a fun project about the seeds we eat. This is a simple one to put together and do with your kids with things you will already have in your home. It is a wonderful nature science activity and also great for lessons on food and nutrition. It goes perfectly with the book The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle, which is the theme for this week’s Virtual Book Club for Kids. See ALL of our book activities for kids!
