Pressing flowers!

2016-04-25 16.30.31.jpg

When I was a little girl I have a flower press which is loved. So when I saw one in Tiger, I thought this will be fun to do with the children. When I showed the children they were very intrigued by it but couldn’t really understand what was going to happen to the flowers. So we put a few flowers from the garden into the press and left them for a couple of weeks. The children kept asking “When are we going to open that thing with the flowers?” When we did open it the children were simply wowed with how the flowers had been pressed! We simply glued our flowers to card and used sharpies to decorate around the edge.
