Summer Play Inspiration - Play with Flowers and Plants

This week's  Share & Play on our Facebook page  (every Wednesday with a new theme)  brought lots of wonderful ideas how to use and reuse natural finds like flowers, plants and parts of plants for fun and learning playtime to lives of our tots! Here are collected all the links to these posts and we surely hope you'll have lots of fun recreating these activities with your toddlers at home!
