What It IsIntroduce kids to nature with this complete set of nature-inspired crafts. Pressing flowers and other items from nature is a classic craft, dating back centuries. The fascination with preserving nature and sharing its beauty has inspired artisans of all kinds.
The Flower Press & Nature Cards kit comes with a wooden flower press to create greeting cards, bookmarks, and gift tags. No screws or tools are required to use the flower press. Just put the flowers or leaves inside with the paper and secure the press with the Velcro straps to make the designs. Kids can even use watercolor paint and ribbon to accent their paper crafts.
In order to obtain the flowers and leaves needed for the flower press, kids must venture outdoors. Take a hike in the woods, a walk in the park, or a quick stroll through the backyard. This kit encourages kids to get outside, and it helps them tune their eyes to see the works of art that nature offers.
