4 Fun Ways to Learn with the Flower Learning Printable – download right below
Ask your little one to color the flowers with crayons or markers. Make the flowers as colorful as he/she wish!
Write number 1 to 5 on the dot stickers. Ask your little one to match the numbers on the dot stickers to those on the flowers. Peeling and sticking the dot stickers is a wonderful fine motor skill activity for children.
Add leaves on the stems according to the numbers on the flowers with finger paint. Count along as your kid makes a fingerprint. Sensory experience always makes learning fun. This is also a good time to introduce parts of a flower (flower, stem, leaves and roots) to your children!
Save the printable from the previous activities for this one! Cut out each flower and mix the pieces up. Ask your little ones to arrange the flowers from shortest to tallest/ tallest to shortest and learn about basic sequencing.
