The little guy and I were just talking about all the fun that we had last spring with our preschool Growing Gardens theme. And of course because it’s that time of the year again, I thought it’d be fun to share a few of our favorites.

If you’ve been around for a while, then you already know that we’re using Mother Goose Time for preschool homeschool and it’s been such a huge blessing to us.
First things first, you can’t exactly have a spring gardening preschool monthly theme without growing something, so this month we kept ourselves busy with this Growing Grass Make & Play Gardening Activity for Preschoolers.
The little guy loved every minute of planting and watering his grass and of course we learned that plants need three things to grow.
Or as he likes to say, “water, dirt, and light from the sun! That’s what plants need to grow!”
While our grass was busy growing, we were hard at work making this Dandelion Invitation to Create Flower Art. Did I mention that the little guy had a blast painting with the pokey ball?
Oh, and it definitely brought back memories of playing with dandelions as a little kid. I’m willing to bet that it has the same effect for you! Lol…
Our Planting Flowers Sensory Bin Gardening Activity for Preschoolers was a huge hit!
And apparently we’re not the only ones who think so! Everyone seems to love this sensory bin. And you know what? What’s not to love? It’s quick! It’s easy! And of course it’s every little kid’s dream!
And last, but not least, we had a little bit of counting fun with our Weeding the Garden Preschool Counting Activity. This was an activity that we adapted from one in our Teacher Guide.
Basically, I was looking to challenge the little guy. And because he already knows colors, I thought it would be fun to focus on one to one correspondence instead.
We had an unforgettable month of spring gardening activities, don’t you think?
