Bus Learning Activities

Spring is in the air where I live (finally) and there are little flowers all over the place. It’s nice to have color after what feels like so long without it, and it’s also a good time to learn about flowers with kids. Here are a few fun resources for learning about and playing with flowers.

Look We’re Learning has a great set of printable flower identification cards that includes eight different flowers: tulip, daffodil, rhododendron, orchid, hibiscus, iris, geranium and dahlia. You can just print out the cards twice and make a memory game, have older kids research a flower on their own, or have younger kids pick a flower they want to learn about. Or take them to the botanical garden and see how many of the flowers you can find.

Kindred Inspiration has a lot of fun spring activities for little kids, but if you scroll through the post you’ll find a set of printable Montessori three-part cards for for daffodils, tulips, snowdrops, crocuses, bluebells, and irises. Print and have kids match the flower to the name.

Learn about the life cycle of a flower with these printables from Homeschool Preschool. There’s a simple version for little kids and one with more description for older kids.

Little Bins for Little Hands has a great series of hands on flower themed activities that little ones are sure to love. Since it starts with flowers in a block of ice, this is one you might want to save for or do again when it is hot outside so kiddos can play with/observe the flowers in the ice and have a little cool off at the same time. Head to the blog post for all the details on this fun activity you can do all at once or in three parts.
