A very simple project

I don't know about you, but one of my favorite January activities is flipping through gardening magazines and catalogues to discover new plants that can be grown once the snow melts away.


These magazines and catalogues contain beautiful pictures of flowers, plants, and vegetables. Often, they can be ordered free of charge over the phone.


For this simple project, you will need:

  • Construction paper or Fun Foam for the cover page
  • Sheets of paper, markers, and scissors
  • Raffia or yarn to bind the pages of your book
  • Stickers, tiny tissue paper flowers, and other decorative items children can use to personalize their book.

Have children cut pictures of the flowers and vegetables they prefer out of the magazines and catalogues and glue them on the pages of their book. Their book could contain several sections: one for flowers and plants and another one for vegetables. This project can last a full week. Use it to introduce children to new vocabulary.


As you are working on this project, cut out a few pictures of colourful flowers. Laminate them and use them to create a memory game or an observation game. Display colourful vegetable pictures in your kitchen area.


Did you know that...

  • To keep your green plants pretty and clean, you can dilute an egg yolk in approximately 500 ml of lukewarm water. Gently dust the leaves of your green plants with a moist cloth before dipping your cloth in the egg mixture and gently rubbing it on your plants' leaves.
  • The carnation is the flower that symbolizes January. This inexpensive flower can be used to create beautiful bouquets and centrepieces.


Have fun and keep in mind that spring is just two months away!
