Flower Power Quiz 💐



Here is a 'Flowers Picture Quiz', just for fun. The aim is to identify each flower and answer each associated question. After every 5 of the 25 questions, there is a song link to YouTube, to give the opportunity for a singalong. To make the session even more multi-sensory, have some flowers from the garden on hand to smell, arrange or draw.


Have fun!
