Inside: These free printable plant life cycle hats are just right for preschool, kindergarten, and first grade.
Can I admit on a post about the life cycle of a plant that I don’t have much of a green thumb? I don’t. The only thing I can keep alive is the basil plant in my kitchen window. But I can make cute printables!
I hope you and your students like this one.
Plant Life Cycle Sequencing Hats
These printable hats come in 4 different versions:
- Print and wear crown featuring a girl
- Print and wear crown featuring a boy
- Cut and paste girl crown
- Cut and paste boy crown
So, depending on whether or not your kids can handle putting these gardening steps in order, you can give them one or the other hats.
All you need in addition to the free printable are some basic supplies:
- glue stick or tape
You may want to cut out the crowns before giving them to students. I purposely kept the shape simple so that you can do them quickly, and that kids with more advanced fine motor skills can cut their own.
Next, students should color the crowns and, if you’re using them, the sequencing pieces. Then, they should cut out and glue pieces to their crowns.
Finally, you should tape or glue the two parts together into a hat. These should fit most preschoolers and kindergartners. If you happen to have a child with a very large head, just tape on another strip of paper to extend the band a little bit.

Teaching about Plant Life Cycles
Of course, you’ll also want to teach students more about the life cycle of a plant. Books are the perfect way to get started!
Zinnia’s Flower Garden is a great introduction for preschool and kindergarten.
I also love A Fruit is a Suitcase for Seeds by Jean Richards for teaching all about seeds. It does a great job of being relatable and relevant.
Gail Gibbon’s book From Seed to Plant is great for children who have lots of questions and are ready for a longer (but still read-aloud-able) informational book.
