After reading a book about plants and flowers, it is fun to do a learning activity with the same theme. This set of number activities focuses on number recognition and counting.

I am sure you can come up with a wide variety of other math related number activities. Older children might like exploring fractions, arrays and even addition facts with them. Before you do any of the number activities, you may want to read a book with a flower theme like The Tiny Seed.
If you don’t want to create a workspace like ours, you could paint three sections of a cardboard box.
Matching the Worm to the Flowers
You can place a number worm on the workspace. Then you can have your children place a group of flowers that equal that number onto the workspace.
Matching the Flowers to the Worms
You can have your children count out a group of flowers. Then they can dig through the pile of worms to find number equals that number of flowers.
