We are a big nature loving family. Since my kids were crawling infants, they were always wanting to play with sticks and rocks and pick up and collect things they found in our yard or on nature walks.

Fun with Flowers_pin
I love incorporating nature into our homeschool and everyday life. Using found items from nature is a great way to have some awesome sensory and nature play. Since it is now spring time we are finding wild flowers everywhere. My girls love collecting them and sticking them in mason jars all over the house. Flowers are great to use for a colorful and a sweet smelling sensory play. 

If you love nature play you will love these fun nature sensory ideas that use flowers:

Create some flower arts and crafts:
Try your hand at flower printing from Learning 4 Kids.
Use flowers to create a simple nature art collage from Where Imagination Grows.
Oil Pastel craft with real flowers from KCEdventures
Use flowers as a paint brush to create art
