R11 has been taking a flower pressing class at Co-op this semester. She is taking tissue paper flowers and flower pressing this fall. I am always amazed at the creativity of the moms when developing the classes for Co-op. What a gift that they share their expertise with us.
|She is excited to have her very own “real” flower press.|
|She and some of her brothers have been taking flower walks to pick the blooms.|
|These small petri dishes are great for collecting on nature walks!|
|Her flower pressing collection…the guides other than the Golden Guide are new acquisitions at our recent book sale.|
|Some more projects…|
|They are even identifying the flowers they pick. Pretty cool.|
|Another creative project- they use a thin glue solution to decoupage the flowers onto objects.|
|How about that rock? The rocks were heated in a crockpot and then they drew on them with crayons which melted the wax. Then they glued on the flowers.|
I have to say I’ve enjoyed watching R11 create with all these flowers. It’s finally sunny enough out to enjoy being outside- we had an extraordinary amount of rain in September and I’m so glad to see some sunny days!
