Flower Press Craft For Kids

Published by under Creating With Kids

Flower Press Craft for Kids

Have you tried pressing flowers with your kids yet?  My daughter and I had a great time picking flowers to press, she enjoyed laying them out between two bits of paper and squashing them within a large book.  We then piled up several books on top of the one containing the flowers and waited…  4 weeks later we got creative and made cards and book marks with the flowers we pressed.

The gift card pictured here was made by gluing petals onto a piece of card board to look like a flower – it was simple, fun and a useful gift tag.  To make the bookmark we stuck the flowers onto a long piece of card board and then covered the whole thing in clear contact.  You can also use the pressed flowers in a collage or picture.  For more craft ideas for kids take a look at our craft for kids section of Baby-Patch.com

Wax Resistant Painting For Kids

Wax Resistant Crayon and Paint Picture

If you are looking for a fun and creative activity to do with your toddler give this a go.  You will need crayons, paper and paint.  Get your child to colour the whole piece of paper in different colours of crayons.  Make sure he or she covers the whole piece of paper in colour.  Then get paint, use black if you want a space / night scene or any other colour if you just want to have fun and make a design.  Cover the whole paper again in the paint.  You can then wait for the paint to dry and then scratch off the paint with a blunt pencil or if your toddler can not wait, use a blunt instrument (or your fingers) to take off some of the paint and make a design.  If your child makes a mistake they can repaint the paper and make a new design!  For other creative ideas to do with kids look at Kids craft activities at baby-patch.com
