Spring weather has finally made an appearance here! Our preschool theme has changed with the warmer temperatures – we’re talking about insects and plants now. The garden activities for kids linked up at last week’s Share It Saturday have given me some great ideas to work with. I know my students are going to love exploring some of the activities, and I hope your kiddos do as well!
Over 70 garden activities for kids!
1. The Usual Mayhem shares resources for hands-on plant science. Great for when you’re planning those garden activities for kids.
2. Growing Book by Book has ten counting books to read with your budding gardeners. I love discovering new books to read with my students!
3. Rubberboots and Elf Shoes planted potatoes with her kindergarten class. I can’t wait to read about the potato feast they’re going to have at the end of the year.
4. Fantastic Fun and Learning created a hunt for letters in the garden. What a fun way to bring literacy out into nature.
5. World for Learning made a terrarium to extend learning about “The Secret Garden”. I love how she crafted a science activity to go along with the book.
