Let your garden grow with this fun activity!
PM: Giant Sunflower
This craft is fun to make as tall as a real sunflower!
AM: Flower Placemats
These flower placemats are a great hands-on way to create with flowers.
This is a great way to explore with vegetables. Taste some then use the rest to paint!
AM: Seed Sorting
Use tweezers to sort seeds and work on sorting skills at the same tie as fine motor skills.
This easy sensory bin was popular with my students this spring, it offered so many ways to explore veggies.
These aren’t just cute flowers, they offer great learning opportunities too. While children add the sequins they are refining their fine motor skills and more often than not they will start counting too.
PM: Mud Soup
Is there anything more fun than mud? I’ll just answer this question for you, no nothing is more fun than mud. So why fight it? This activity is absolutely perfect!
AM: Nature Prints
What a fun way to use Play-Doh! You can use whatever little bits of nature you have.
Go on a hunt in your yard, garden or even a local park. It’s way easier than you think and your kids will LOVE this.
