Spring is in the air and Earth Day is in a few weeks so I thought it might be a good idea to wrap up the week with one of my favorite projects for teaching kids about planting.
C and I originally made these cheerful succulent gardens for his preschool teacher on Teacher Appreciation Day but you could easily adapt the project for a variety of occasions.
Use the chalkboard labels to write a special message for Mom on Mother’s Day or simply to record the name of the plants you select. Go here to get the full tutorial and make sure you don’t forget the colorful dinosaurs!
Here are a few more planting projects to try with the kids:
- Plantable Paper Earths
- Kitchen Experiment: Growing Plants from Food Scraps
- Veggie Garden Sensory Bin (with free vegetable marker printables)
- Natural Play Spaces: Children’s Veggie Gardens
