If you are familiar with Montessori pedagogy, you might have heard about Montessori style flower arranging. In the Montessori approach, children start learning about flower arranging when they are still in kindergarten. It is part of their daily activities. This helps children to:

  • Learn about the beauty of nature, the environment and themselves.
  • Learn how to take care of flowers, arrange flowers and compost them afterwards.
  • Learn about colours, textures and balance.

Flower arranging helps children to develop their fine motor skills while they are cleaning the flowers, pouring water, etc. It is also a nice introduction to botany and basic design. With this easy flower arranging method, children practise making decisions which builds their intelligence and confidence.
