  1. 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!

  2. 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.

    • 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!

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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 🙂

  9. 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. 🙂

    • 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!

  10. 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!

  11. Hello! I love this article. I homeschool my three kids, and love gardening. Teaching them about botany has been a joy. I’m happy to say that you’ve been chosen as a feature on this Tuesday’s Laugh and Learn Link-Up. Thank you for sharing your great content.

  12. Stopping by from Titus2sday and loving these ideas! So cute and smart : ) You’re little one is blessed to have a mama teaching her about God’s world!! Blessings to you!
