After seeing this idea on the Little Acorn Learning blog, I knew we had to try it. You simply squish the flowers into the paper to draw with them. Dandelions are especially juicy and work well.
It worked great and was a nice ending to our dandelion and violet crafting. We also did a little printing with the flowers and a hammer. Both girls *loved* that art project.
I’m also doing a little crafting after the girls go to bed. Jason is out of town this week, so I’ve spinning and plying while watching the first two seasons of Doctor Who. I had a mishap with my wheel the other day- the nylon tube that attaches to the pedal broke, but I’m crossing my fingers that my temporary fix will at least hold until I can be the rest plied. I’m planning to start a pair of longies with it on our camping trip next week.
