GET A FULL WEEK OF FLOWER THEMED LESSON PLANS WITH OUR PRESCHOOL FLOWER LESSON PLANS
This is a great spring flower theme activity to do with preschoolers. They’ll love the opportunity to get up and move as they collect flowers! Your kids can do this with a parent, sibling, or even a friend too. Kids will search for each flower until they have collected them all.
If you’re in a pinch and are looking for a quick and easy activity to do with your kids to keep them busy while weaving in a bit of playful learning, our free flower scavenger hunt will come in handy.
To get started all you have to do is print and cut the flowers. Laminate them if you want to use them for repeated use again and again.
Grab flower baskets for each child, or you can set up a “flower bed” for your kids to put the flowers in as they find them.
You could even make the flower bed a sensory bin for your kids to play in once they’ve found all the flowers. Just add your favorite flower garden inspired sensory filler. You might try real soil, black beans, or black paper shreds.
Hide the flowers around the room or outside, and then let your flower scavenger hunt begin!
Once kids think they’ve found all of the flowers be sure to have them line them up in number order to make sure no flowers are still hiding.
Try these additional activities to extend the learning with this flower scavenger hunt:
- Have your kids make “stems” for each of the flowers to match the number. Green LEGO cubes work great if you have them!
- Have your kids count out other manipulatives to represent seeds, leaves, bees, and butterflies to go with the flowers.
- Leave the flowers in a flower garden and create a fun flower garden sensory bin for free play.
- Have your kids put the cards in order from least to greatest. Then use this set as a number line for spring math activities.
