Free Resources to Teach Kids About Plants

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:

Small Greenhouse Build

While drinking my coffee one morning, I realized that my tiny house was overrun by seedlings! To top it off, they weren’t getting enough sun. I had no choice, really, but I didn’t have the funding for a greenhouse. I did some scrounging and found and old roll of plastic …

Stumps and Rocks

The first area that I will be adding will be the water room. It is currently loaded with stumps and rocks. The rain barrels will be set up here, and so the sink will be nearby, and the next room over will be the bathroom. They need to be close …
