    Great ideas. I also highly recommend having each student grow a TickleMe Plant. Its the only plant that kids can interact with. Touch it and it closes it leaves and lowers its branches.
    Find videos of the plant in action and classroom kits online or in any science catalog.

    Read on for ideas.
    • Start With a Nature Walk

      Plants and Flowers 

      Each season brings new plants and flowers. Since children learn through their senses, try to schedule a nature walk to view, smell, and touch the foliage. When back in the classroom, invite the children to express their experiences with these preschool art projects. Plants and flowers are emphasized below.

      Plant and Leaf Rubbings

      As you take a nature walk with the children, collect an assortment of leaves and flowers for future art projects.

    Begin by arranging the leaves on a dampened sheet of watercolor paper. Brush around the leaves with rainbow colors of thinned watercolor paint, and sprinkle a little table salt on the paint while it's wet. Let the pictures sit undisturbed until dry, then pull the leaves from the picture. Enjoy the impressionistic art along with sparkle from the salt!
  • Stamp a Garden of Flowers

     Let flowers unleash your student's blooming spirit with this art project. Supply your class with different flower-shaped stamps or sponges (these can be cut from a household sponge), paint, and paper.

  • For sparkle, glue on large sequins on the flower petals if the child wishes to do so.
  • Pressing Plants

     One of the easiest ways to incorporate leaves and flowers into an art project is to press them. Dried foliage can be pressed and decorate almost anything. Make bookmarks as an easy class project. Start by pressing flowers that you have gathered in paper towels and then lay a heavy book on top. After a few days, most flowers will be dry and flat.

    Next, seal pressed blossoms between two pieces of clear adhesive paper.
