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 truly the BEST play dough recipe ever,and if you add dry koolaid instead of food coloring, you have smell-o-riffic dough! (this is ALMOST my recipe, although I do 1/2 cup of salt instead. and I did add the glitter for fairy play dough. big hit.)"
