Botany Morning Basket

Our themed printable morning basket sets, created by Rebecca Clarke of Whimsy Printables, are full of fun, hands-on learning activities geared towards 2-6 year olds, but can be used with older children too. These sets are designed to go alongside each of our individual unit studies and can be used in tandem with their corresponding units or enjoyed independently. They are also great to keep younger children busy while their older siblings work through their units! Shop our Botany unit study here.

Here's what you'll find inside the Botany Morning Basket:
