Montessori Monday – Montessori-Inspired Flower Activities

Mother's Day- and Teacher Appreciation Gifts for Kids to Give
Thank You's for April 2013

Montessori-Inspired Flower ActivitiesWho can help but enjoy springtime flowers?! “April showers bring May flowers.” What a fun thought. And U.S. Mother’s Day during May brings even more thoughts of flowers. While flower activities are great any time during the spring or summer, May does seem like a natural time to focus on flowers.

Here are some Montessori-inspired printables and activities featuring flowers. I’ll share the links to my previous posts with flower activities. This post will feature flower activities published since last May (except for flower arranging, which wasn’t a focus of my gardening roundup).
