Springtime Reading

Blooming flowers, chirping birds and balmy warm weather -- sounds like spring! Whatever the season, celebrate greenery and growth by helping your child study some delightful spring words.

What You Need:

  • Scissors
  • White poster board
  • Marker
  • Knife
  • Small Styrofoam ball
  • Spring vocabulary list
  • Yellow paint
  • Green paint
  • Paint brush
  • Place mat
  • Plastic craft stick
  • Glue

What You Do:

  1. Place the Styrofoam ball and the craft stick on the place mat.
  2. Have your child paint the ball yellow and the craft stick green.
  3. Set aside both pieces to dry.
  4. Let your child paint half the poster board green.
  5. This next step is all you! Use a knife to make an indented line all around the Styrofoam ball.
  6. While you're working, let your child use scissors to cut out twenty large white petals from the unpainted poster board.
  7. Let him cut big green leaves out of the painted side of the poster board.
  8. Help him glue the leaves on the craft stick.
  9. Put one end of the craft stick into the Styrofoam ball.
  10. Have your child write one spring vocabulary word on ten of his white petals.
  11. Without him peeking, write ten random words on the remaining petals.
  12. Put all the petals in one pile.
  13. Let him put only the spring words in the Styrofoam ball.
  14. Ask him to define each word as he selects it.
  15. Have your child keep going until the flower is complete.
