Floral Sensory Table

There has been a very interested buzz in our house lately over flowers - perhaps we all have spring fever? This past week I filled our sensory table with some beautiful river rocks, four galvanized containers, and dozens of assorted silk flowers (all from the local dollar store).

The kids were captivated and the materials have inspired much creative arranging as they have sorted the flowers by colour and size while designing different vases.

 I was really surprised by the high level of interest and engagement these materials inspired.

Free floral arrangements for the taking!

An interesting extension to this centre might be to add some shovels, gardening gloves and dirt, and replace the galvanized pots with terra cotta ones in order to turn the floral arrangement centre into a flower garden!
