Seed & Plant Matching Game & {FREE} Printable

Spring is here! We are gardening, planting seeds, and spending lots of time outside! My kids are obsessed with seeds, so I made this Seed & Plant Packet to go with The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle.

We're reading The Tiny Seed this week for our gardening unit with the Virtual Book Club, and I've discovered that preschoolers are amazed at 1- how seeds grow into flowers and trees and 2- the huge variety of seeds!

So I put a pretty big variety of seeds into this Seed & Plant Packet! There are trees, flowers, and food! Some seeds are super tiny and others are pretty big!

You can put the cards in a Montessori-style bin, play matching and memory games with them, or use them to brainstorm plants that you might want to grow this year!

If you're looking for more gardening ideas for preschoolers, you may want to check out my Edible Flowers, Excellent Plants to Grow With Kids, and How to Make a Fairy Garden with Preschoolers posts! 

I hope you have a great time with this packet! I would LOVE to see how you use it! Feel free to send a note, leave a comment or stop by Preschool Powol Packets on Facebook!
