STUNNING gift and so easy to create!! Simply take a trip to your local gardening store for those supplies, pick your succulent and then add a few embellishments. Teachers and Grandparents would love this gift from kids! This post tells you how to layer the soils for a long, lasting plant.

Parts of a plant: we did this in Playschool a few weeks ago with kids ages 1-5 and took our time talking about the various things a plant needs to grow as we added each one and then our labels. We added a label for the stem, one for the leaf, and the petals. For the flower petals we used cupcake liners, a great activity for kids especially preschool age thats interactive, educational, and fun! A great precursor to planting real flowers or plants in the classroom or home as we did yesterday!
