This post is FULL of incredible information and beautiful botany work for children. I LOVE it so much! Thank you for packing this with awesome information! The play dough mats are such a great idea and the flower snack is SUPER cute!
Thank you, Vanessa!

Very, very cool! Awesome!
Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful way to explore! We have to much shade around our home to a beautiful garden. I’m jealous! Thank you for the wonderful ideas.

We have a ton of clay, but we’re going for raised boxes this year!

Sounds like a lot of fun, especially painting with flowers. 🙂 This is intended for preschool ages, is it?
April 30, 2015 at 10:24 pm
Hi Marie – I mostly did them with my preschoolers, but a couple of the older toddlers joined in, too. Kindergarteners and early elementary would probably enjoy some of them, too!
April 17, 2015 at 4:16 pm
Jennifer, this is just so beautiful! I love everything about this post. The nature walk, the painting using flowers… and the subtle introduction of the subject itself. Thanks for sharing!

Wow! What a wonderful post. This is so well done. I also want to point out that I love your photos of the garden. You picked some of our favorite books to feature–we especially love A Seed is Sleepy.

Thank you, Sheila — we loved exploring our gorgeous neighbourhood gardens 🙂 We really are so lucky to have those within walking distance.
April 18, 2015 at 4:33 pm
Wow! You have covered so many areas. I love many of the ideas here. I’m going to have to look into the book suggestions as well.

Thank you, Bess – I loved your post, too!

Oh my goodness, there are just so many brilliant ideas in this! What a fantastic way to introduce kids to botany, I’m 35 and it made me want to learn more about it too!
June 13, 2015 at 12:31 am
Aw, that’s awesome! Thank you for stopping by, Kate 🙂

These are some of the cutest ideas I’ve seen . Love the flower with raisins and spinach petals. So cute. And it would make a child learn and eat veggies.
April 30, 2015 at 5:01 pm
Thank you, Kim! They were SO excited to eat their spinach prepared this way, LOL.

So much amazing information here! I can’t wait to do a botany unit with my daughter — she’s going to love it. She already loves flower arranging! Thanks for putting together such a fantastic resource 🙂
April 30, 2015 at 4:59 pm
Thank you, Nell! I think your daughter is already so well acquainted with natural science — I think everything you do with her is wonderful!
April 20, 2015 at 8:38 am
I love the idea about dissecting the flower. I know my youngest daughter loves hands on projects, so I am trying to figure out how to add more in to homeschool. Because I am not naturally a hands on learner. 🙂
April 30, 2015 at 4:58 pm
I totally get you, Kristie! My daughter is really into crafts and science which is not my natural intelligence AT ALL. LOL. Thank you for stopping by, let me know how the journey to hands-on learning goes!
April 22, 2015 at 6:39 pm
This is getting pinned right now. It’s especially perfect for us right now because my daughter has been way into flowers lately. Found you over on the A Little R&R Wednesday link up. Thanks for sharing these great ideas!
April 30, 2015 at 2:50 pm
Thank you, Nicole! Lovely to “meet” you — I hope your daughter likes them!
April 22, 2015 at 10:29 pm
This is such a lovely post. There are several things I will include the next time we are studying flowers.
April 30, 2015 at 2:49 pm
Thank you, Cathie — and thank you again for those wonderful cards!!!

Such amazing ideas – my 3.5 yo has been bitten by the botany bug, so these are great! Thanks for linking up at #WeLoveWeekends – you’ve been featured (again) this week! I hope you’ll be back to share again

Thank you so much for all of your amazing ideas. We used some of them in a unit I did with my 2 little guys. I wrote a blog post about what we did and I linked back here. Thanks again!
