In May, there are many plants and flowers in our area, and events based on them! It’s a great time for a set of 10 Plants Preschool Trays!
This time we just didn’t have enough time to do a lot of what I printed, plus, we did a lot of outdoor activities that did not make it onto the trays. Take a look at the things we did indoors!
- Color by Shape
- Seed Starting
- Flower Pattern Blocks
- Water Wow! Book
- Growing Dice Game
- Fruit/Flower Sort
- Bean Plant Sequence Sort
- Find the F’s Page
- Flower Shapes & Colors Book
- Life Cycle of a Plant Booklet
- This cool Flower Color by Shape activity is from Making Learning Fun — thank you!
- As usual, I printed this as is in black and white, colored in the key for him at the bottom, then gave him the colored pencils to do the rest.
- It’s a great time to start seeds indoors! We used a
small version of this Jiffy Greenhouse Starter kit
- We had several kind of seeds to try, from flowers to lettuce and herbs.
- Dad helped E set things up, and in only a few days sprouts started to show!
- There is a page in this Water Wow! Book with several plants on it, so I went with it!
- These are among our favorite “tot school on the go” activities.
- I made this game based off this flower dice game found on Pinterest — thank you!
- I used clipart of a leaf on a stem, saved one reversed, then used Photoscape to build graphics with 1-6 leaves
- I also found clipart of two bright flowers
- Finally, a simple Dicecapades Kids Version die makes this game. Roll the die and add that many leaves to your flower!
- Is it a fruit or a flower? Figure it out with this free categorizing page from Education.com!
- This great set is from the Garden Preschool Pack from Homeschool Creations — a neat way to watch how a bean plant changes!
- I seriously can’t find who this is from. Please comment if it is yours so I can give you credit!!
- This wonderful little book is part of the Garden Preschool Pack from Homeschool Creations!
- I printed this in color and trimmed the pages, but didn’t bind them. I figured he would like to lay them out.
- This ready-to-color Life Cycle of a Plant Booklet is from WorksheetPlace.com — thank you!
- I gave him this trimmed and ready to color with a bunch of
Crayola Twistables crayons!
This was one of those weeks that went by really, really fast! Looking back I think it was our first really nice few days of weather so it was great for looking outside at real flowers, bulbs, and so on.
I am thinking of doing a sunflower theme later this fall, so I imagine a lot of what I missed using with this theme can be used then. In the meantime, check out some more of our seasonal themes!
