Flower Crafts, Flower Preschool Activities, Flower Daycare Games, Lessons, and Printables

Flower Crafts and Flower Preschool Activities. April showers bring May flowers. May is a traditional month to celebrate spring. The weather is turning warm, birds are singing, and flowers are blooming. One way to celebrate spring is to make May baskets and fill them with flowers. Discover with your children the world of plants and flowers during the month of May. {Plants are living things. Many plants have flowers, but some do not. Flowers come in many shapes and make the seeds that grow into new plants.) Samples of our over 100 flowers crafts, flower preschool activities and games, and printables available in our KidsSoup Resource Library:

Parts of a Flower
Explain to children that a flower or any plant has different parts: roots, stems, leaves, flowers, and seeds.

Instruction:
Show children a flower such as a daisy or carnation with roots attached. Ask children, “Can anyone name the parts of a flower?” Point to the petals or flower of the plant and ask, “What are these called?” Explain to children that the flower has parts on the inside (petals) and the inside (ovule, pistil, stamen, stigma). Explain to children that flowers produce seeds that can grow into new plants. Point to the leaves and say, “Leaves are the plant’s food factory. The flower makes food from sunlight. It’s called photosynthesis. The stem is the plant’s drinking straw. With the roots the stem helps bring water to all parts of the plant.” Point to the center of the flower and explain that flowers make the seeds that grow into new plants. Last, point to the roots and explain that the roots hold the plant in place. Plants need water to live. They take it in through their roots. The water travels through their stems to the veins in their leaves up to the flower.

Flower Activities

Facts: Flowers produce seeds that can grow into new plants. Flowers have parts on the outside (petals) and the inside (ovule, pistil, stamen, stigma). Flowers will wilt, dry out, and die if they are uprooted from the soil. Cut flowers survive in just water, but only for a few days.

Flower Sniff
Show children a selection of flowers that have different fragrances. Let them smell each flower and make a chart of their favorite flower smell.

Flower Pressing:
Go on a walk and collect some flowers. Explain to children that the flowers will wilt and die quickly after being picked. Tell them that to preserve their beauty, we can press the flowers. To preserve the flowers they need to be completely dried out. Have children choose two or three flowers to preserve. Write child’s name on a piece of newspaper. Arrange the flowers face down on the paper without overlapping. Cover the flowers with another piece of newspaper. Carefully place them inside a heavy book such an old telephone directory. Allow flowers to dry for at least two weeks.

Flower Math Activities
At the craft store buy small ribbon rosebuds in a variety of colors. Use a muffin tin to sort by color or count them or make patterns.

Fruit Salad Flowers
Cut oranges and apples into thin slices, slice bananas, cut celery into long strips, and cut green grapes in half. Give children large plates and show them how to arrange fruit to build a flower: apple and orange slice for petals, banana slice for centers, celery for stem, and green grape halves for leaves. Then give them a few sunflower seeds to put in the center of their flower.

Free Flower Crafts

Flower Seed Collage
Print sunflower pattern and cut out. Trace onto craft paper. Have children glue a variety of seeds onto flower. Show them how to get different effects by using one kind of seed for the center of the flower and another kind of seed for the petals. Have children color the stem and leaves green.

Popcorn Flowers
Mix popped popcorn in paper bag with colored tempera paint and shake. Have children draw a stem and leaves for their flower on construction paper. Glue popcorn on paper for flower petals.

Coffee Filter Flowers
Give each child 3–5 coffee filters or tissue paper. Have children color (decorate) them with magic markers (or watercolor paints). Once children are finished decorating, lay the coffee filters on top of each other and gather them in the center. Twist a green pipe cleaner around the center for a stem. Display bouquet in a vase.

Little Brown Seeds
Little brown seeds so small and round,
Are sleeping quietly underground.
Down come the raindrops,
Sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle.
Out comes the rainbow,
Twinkle, twinkle, twinkle.
Little brown seeds way down below,
Up through the earth they grow, grow, grow.
Little green leaves come out one by one.
They hold up their heads and look at the sun.

Little Seed
(Tune: I'm A Little Teapot)
I'm a little seed
In the dark, dark ground.
Out comes the warm sun,
Yellow and round.
Down comes the rain,
Wet and slow.
Up comes the little seed,
Grow, grow, grow!
