Preschool Fine Motor Fun with Sunflowers, tweezing sunflower seeds for spring and summer - Teaching 2 and 3 Year Olds

Fine Motor Fun with Sunflowers

We love to explore sunflowers for science, then creating large sunflower art for our classroom wall. We ask our preschool families if they have any homegrown sunflowers that they'd like to donate.

This is a much-loved activity! What you will need: Sunflower plants, the bigger the better Tweezers Cups to put the seeds…

Tic Tac Toe Garden Table

Inspired by a similar idea in pinterest, I found a round wooden table top at the local home improvement store-perfect! My son-in-law burned a tic-tac-toe grid onto the table top.
