The season of Spring reminds us of the blossoming of flowers and the appearance of many insects including butterflies and beetles. While the insects are bothersome at times, spring flowers always leave us in awe and brighten up our mood.
A flower consists of many parts that help make it flourish. Some parts may be too miniscule to see but it plays an important role in its totality. At one point in middle school, our teachers must have taught us each and every part of the flower. We were probably made to memorize all the nitty gritty and sure enough it must have driven us crazy. This is not the case for young kids though because the parts of a flower are much simpler with only 4 to 6 parts in total.
The Parts of a Flower for Kids
Back when we were younger, this is the flower parts concept that we have in mind – simple and direct to the point. But as we grow older, we become too nosey with the complexities in life that we take hold of each and every information that we can grasp.
Teach your Kids the Parts of the Flower
We have reached a point where kids are dependent on us for information. Regardless of topic, it has become our responsibility to educate kids on everything that we seem fit. As such, we can teach them the parts of the flower while making easy spring flowers craft for kids. Read further below and let me help you, help your kids.
