LOVE this. I've been trying to think of a more productive use for dramatic play in my garden themed classroom!
Allow children to help make labels for class displays. If they can't write the whole word, have them just do the first letter and then the teacher writes the rest (flower shop dramatic play center)
dramatic play flower shop fine motor fun. Use a coffee can w lid. Poke holes in the lid and stick flowers in the holes
Find the word in the bin. Fun sensory activity. Easy to adapt for preschoolers--use numbers, shapes, etc.
