We do our best to spend as much time as possible outside, especially after a long, cold winter.  However, on the really rainy days, you may just need something to do with the kids inside.  The links I listed below are full of plant worksheets and activities for the little ones.  Some are outdoor activities as well, so not all for rainy days.

I decided that I would print up a bunch of the worksheets and make a spring workbook.  All I did was punch holes in the sheets and make a cover out of cardstock.  The cover helps keep the book together and protected, in case your kids are as “gentle” as my kids are.  We bring this book, and the others they have, out when we need a break for outdoors.

This week is perfect for the workbooks because the gnats are out and it is impossible to go outside without getting eaten alive.  And here is the list:
