A Fun Easy Planting Activity for Preschoolers
[Affiliate links at NO cost to you.]
I have fallen completely in love ...with GRASS HEADS! Seriously, you all are going to LOVE these! My sweet friend Yay for PreK started doing these a few years back and it has become my favorite planting activity.
After the hot glue dries, I have them draw on a mouth with a permanent marker.
Add some dirt and grass seed and you'll have a grass head in no time!
The best part? The haircuts!
Take your kiddos outside and have them trim away with scissors. The giggles are guaranteed! 🤣
Send them home over the summer and they will WANT to practice their cutting skills.
Other fun plant themed ideas...
Use dried black beans as pretend dirt in a sensory tub or table. Add scoops, shovels and other planting tools, as well as pots and pretend flowers.
Grow herbs in the classroom and taste test them with fruit... mint is always a favorite!
Try making playdough out of dandelions! Stephanie from Parenting Chaos had this amazing idea! I'm going to try it this spring!
Use dandelion stems, leaves, rocks and whatever else you can find to have students make their name on a piece of paper. These turn out so cute! Take a picture and send it to the parents.
