Let babies manipulate artificial flowers and plastic vases (make a loop with the stems and fasten with tape to protect eyes and mouths).
Fill plastic bottles with water. Place the tops of artificial flowers inside. Secure the cap with hot glue. These bottles are so pretty!
Bring a bouquet to the daycare and place it so babies can see it. Have them smell and touch the flowers.
If it's dandelion time outside, let older babies slide them over a large sheet of white paper. Dandelions leave a yellow deposit on paper.

Hang a branch from your ceiling and add flowers.
