This past week we visited the botanic gardens in our city. I took the opportunity and made it into a learning game for E.
I found these great flower three-part cards at The Adventures of Bear. And while E is not ready for three-part card work yet, she loves the pictures. She calls them her "flower keys" because they remind her of keys on a ring after I laminated them and put them on a ring clip. She took them with her all over the gardens and we found almost every flower. She was so excited when she found a match! We even found a dandelion, which I'm sure the gardeners just love. ;)
Ugh! Sorry these pictures are not the best. I'm still getting used to my digital camera outside in the sunshine!
The flowers we were looking for were: dandelion, phlox, cherry blossoms, pear blossoms, sunflower, daisy, magnolia, and daffodil. We found everything but a daisy and a sunflower - they are not blooming yet in our part of the world. We also found many tulips, grasses, lettuce, onions, and a few ducks and geese in the ponds. Oh - and koi, E LOVED the koi pond.
