Spring flowers project Montessori trays for toddlers:
Flower garden sticking activity
We started sticking practice last week. I was intending to give C scraps of paper to stick and make a ‘flower’ garden but she showed no interest whatsoever. I exchanged the scraps for large pictures of flowers that I cut out of a magazine.
Later in the week, I put the scraps back on the tray. C found them and wanted to do some more sticking……..
Other spring flower project ideas:
duplo flower garden
We had a set of Easter window stickers which included flowers. I stuck strips of paper on the window as stems. Long, medsium and short stems. There were big, medium and small flowers. C enjoyed pulling the flowers off and sticking them back on. C always sticks the small flowers on the short stems. The medium and big flowers seem to be interchangeable.
bottle shaker filled with fabric flowers.
This is a roll-a-flower game.
each part of the flower has a different number on it 1-6, players roll the dice and construct a flower. The first person to complete a flower is the winner.
I thought it might be fun for C to put the flowers together (without the number and counting aspect) but she hated it! If I made a flower as an example, she would destroy it…….
This tray has a construction activity on it. All the parts of a daffodil:
are on the tray and there is a photocard showing a real daffodil.
