Nature play at its finest!
This handmade, wooden, multi-layer flower press makes the traditional craft of flower-pressing easier by preserving the beautiful colors and shapes of the natural environment around us.
With this wooden press, children will be able to place species of flowers, herbs or grasses between the recycled cardboard and timber; once in place, the press is put back together by tightening the wingnuts, the press and flowers are then left to do their thing.
This resource invites children to explore and connect with the natural world around them while engaging in nature and sustainability. This experience also provokes creativity, science, technology and fine motor skills.
- To press your nature finds, simply arrange them in between the cardboard layers (you can also add blotting paper or equivalent if you wish). Tighten the nuts, and leave the blooms to dry for 2-4 weeks.
