Parts of a plant: we did this in Playschool a few weeks ago with kids ages 1-5 and took our time talking about the various things a plant needs to grow as we added each one and then our labels. We added a label for the stem, one for the leaf, and the petals. For the flower petals we used cupcake liners, a great activity for kids especially preschool age that's interactive, educational, and fun! A great precursor to planting real flowers or plants in the classroom or home as we did yesterday!
This is a great nature activity for a rainy summer day when you still want to explore but can’t do it outside. Gather your materials. You will need some flowers with leaves and stems, a cutting board, plain white paper, a rolling pin or brayer roller, tweezers, and scissors.
Botany for Kids: This simple science activity for kids doubles as a gorgeous flower craft and provides some floral fine motor skills - this flower dissection is simple to set up and gets kids interested in botany!
