Exploring seeds in preschool

in Activity Boxes, Science and Nature, Spring Gardening

This activity box is filled with a variety of dry beans and pasta for a little spring garden sensory play….

If you are wondering why there is pasta mixed into the mix – I can’t really say except that it provides a little more color and texture…

As with any sensory activity like this, we always add bowls and cups of various sizes for scooping and pouring…

The children have been exploring all kinds of plant activities such as planting their own seeds…

And exploring what will happen as the flowers grow…

If you missed our fun with tall flowers – be sure to check them out too!

Here are a few more seed ideas…
