Pressed flowers for young children


Emma helped me press some flowers recently, and then wanted to play with the finished product. Because she didn’t want the fragile dried flowers to fall apart, we decided to laminate them using some packing tape. Now she has beautiful dried flowers she can play with to her heart’s content without worrying about crushing them!

We pressed the flowers by placing them between two sheets of paper in a dictionary and leaving them there until they dried. Be sure to wait until the flowers are completely dried to laminate them, or they might mold.
