Flowers are an essential component to any plant theme. They are among the most beautiful things to gaze upon.
Using pictures with numbered instructions, rasberries, celery, carrots, and bananas, your little one created their very own flower!
This activity incorporated several areas of development for your little one to enjoy. The numbered instructions fostered pre-reading skills, as each child followed the pictures from left to right.
Manipulating the fruit (to construct the flower) accessed self-help and fine motor skills, which are imperative for autonomy, confidence, and future writing endeavors.
Lastly, following the instructions in order allowed your little one to understand sequencing (the order in which things happen) strengthened their counting skills!
