Your children can create beautiful flowers from seed to petals using foam shapes purchased from the dollar store.
- foam shapes
The shapes I purchased had glittered pieces and peel and stick backs. Very fun!
Start your garden by planting a seed shape in the paper dirt. The stem is made from a strip of paper.
If you have young children it is likely that their shapes may be scattered randomly across the page. That is perfectly fine! They are learning the process and experimenting with the materials.
This activity can be adapted to a classroom setting. The children’s flowers be ‘grown’ on a bulletin board. Each part of plant can be discussed and added starting with the seed.
There are many excellent books that discuss flowers and seeds. You can review them on Amazon, just click the images below. One of my favorites is “Planting a Rainbow” by Lois Ehlert.
This activity is an opportunity to explore geometry and science.
Have fun creating beautiful flowers together!
