This week in preschool we pressed some flowers! We experimented with different techniques to see which would work best. Some of the children used their toy hammers whilst others used rolling pins. We also used the more traditional technique of putting it between books and leaving it for a few days. By the end of the week the children had a look at their flowers and compared the different techniques. They concluded that the hammers did not work as well as the rolling pins and books as the flower petals fell apart. We extended the activity by using our pressed flowers to create lovely artwork!
