Egg Carton Caterpillar Garden
We made a caterpillar face using construction paper, wiggly eyes, and a couple of green golf tees. We then glued it to 1/2 of an egg carton. We then planted grass by using a couple of spoon fulls of soil, and some grass seed. When watered daily, the grass will grow quickly.
Make Dandelions Using a Fork
You will need yellow paint, a fork, a piece of paper, and a green mark
Have the kids dip the back of a fork into some yellow paint.
Then tell them to press down on the paper and pull back making a circle shape first. Fill in the middle parts and let dry
Draw a stem with a green marker. You can leave the dandelion totally yellow or add a bit of orange paint for some depth.
This is a great activity for older children. Present the children with several different types of flowers that include their stems and leaves.. Have the students choose a flower and place it on a piece of paper. Assist the children in identifying the different parts of their flower and (if age appropriate) labeling them.
