Spring means it’s time to get outside even more than usual and enjoy the sunshine! For me, it’s also a fun time to plan a flowers and plants theme for my preschoolers. We’re having a having a “Dirt and Mud Day” soon, and the kids and I are super excited! It’s a fun, messy way to extend the theme and have a blast with friends. So I’ve had a slew of flower and garden crafts and activities on my mind while planning. Check out some of those fun ideas below!
