All About Gardening Resources for Preschool

The weather is getting warm in my neck of the woods, flowers are beginning to peep out. And it’s the time of year to be thinking about planting a garden.

I have to admit that I don’t really have a green thumb. In fact, every time we’ve tried to garden, we haven’t been very successful. Between bunnies who’ve enjoyed the free food and heat that’s dried up our plants, we’ve only succeeded in growing some okra and some cucumbers.

But even though I’ve never succeeded in gardening, I love the idea of a garden. (Does that count for anything?!) And in honor of gardening season, I’m sharing a garden-themed booklist, some gardening activities, and a list of garden-themed lapbooks and printables so you can enjoy all things gardening with your preschoolers.
