Alphabet Flower Garden

Alphabet Garden (9)

We are so ready for spring flowers around here, so decided to make them bloom in our home before the ones outside catch up. This beautiful foam sticker garden was a great way to sneak in some learning.

I drew flower stems and leaves on a piece of foam with a permanent marker (poster board would probably work even better), with a letter of the alphabet at the head of each stem. I then wrote the alphabet letters on foam flowers.

It was now up to Travis to add the flower to each stem, matching up letters as he went.

For a few minutes, he was more interested in just fooling around with the foam stickers. But once he made the connection of what I was really asking of him, he was SO excited each time he found the matching stem for his flower.

He made it about three-quarters of the way through the alphabet before losing interest, so I finished off our garden, but not before proudly surveying his work!

The next morning, we added additional stickers of leaves and bugs to round out the picture – a beautiful spring garden.
