Spring is in the air and on the Virtual Book Club for Kids we have a fun early spring-themed activity plan for you.
This flower week featuring the book Lola Plants a Garden is a fun week of planned activities for you and your preschooler to do together.
All 5 simple activities are easy, low prep and lots of fun.
So here you go our Spring Flower Themed Activity Plan for a Week of Fun with your Preschooler.
Lola Plants a Garden
We have included links to the books on Amazon. As an associate, we may earn from qualifying purchases.
Our featured book this week for the Virtual Book Club for Kids is Lola Plants a Garden by Anna McQuinn.
In this lovely story, Lola and her Mommy decide to grow a garden. The story walks you through the process as Lola grows her own garden resulting in a collection of flowers that can inspire you and your preschoolers to grow your own.
We particularly like how Lola and her Mommy include lots of different activities in their planting and gardening.
Spring is the ideal time to start to grow your own garden and you don't need a lot of space to do it. Bulbs and smaller flowers can be grown on a window sill in some light, a container on a balcony or patio can be filled with flower seeds or if you have space you can give a section of your own garden for your preschooler to grow. It's a bit longer than a week to do the activity but the rewards are fantastic and just like Lola you and your preschooler may be inspired.

Preschool Spring Flower Planting Play Dough Activity
Our sensory play activity this week for you and your preschoolers is a simple Spring Flower Planting Activity with Playdough.
We found lots of spring flowers in the Easter crafting section of the hobby store this week and have been using them with playdough to create our own version at home. With older kids, the cards are a great idea but we do prefer to keep this more open-ended and let our preschoolers create their own flower pot arrangements.
Alphabet Activities for Spring: Alphabet Flower Garden Activity
With a little bit of craft foam or sticky flowers, you can turn our Spring Flower Sensory activity this week into one to learn letters and if your child is read start to read words.
This Spring Flower Alphabet Planting Activity is great to do and you and your little one can use it to match their ability.
Simple and Engaging Plant the Flowers Spring Math Game for Kids
Keeping with the same equipment and just using it in a different way our math activity this week is a spring flower math game.
We love when no extra materials are needed just using them in different ways it makes it much simpler to set up at home and do with your children.

Choosing a snack or recipe this week was hard there were so many cute ideas however, we think you and your preschoolers will love our fruit flower snack idea.
