There were so many terrific learning activities, crafts, and snacks shared for the Discover and Explore flower theme. I’m excited to use many of them in our next flower unit. Today’s features include art activities kids can create with real flowers.
Whether we’re walking around the neighborhood or out and about, my kids love to collect flowers. These fun ideas can help us put all of those flowers to good use.
