Remember the Summer Fun post where she wouldn’t reveal what she drew? It was “Movie Night”., since she drew it that meant she got to pick the movie. She was excited, but that left a space of boredom during the day, because she’s had a heat rash of some sort so I was keeping her inside… drowned rat sad faced kind of trauma I’m telling you!
So I let her pick another one to see if it was something we could do NOW. (Next jar I think I’ll color code: crafts, trips, indoor, outdoor.. or something like that so I can give her a few color options to choose from based on time span.) She picked pressed flower art.
We really don’t have a lot in our new yard yet, some purple flowers I haven’t identified and a lot of dandelions. Does anyone think Kaelyn cared? You got it! Not at all!
I thought it might be something you’d like to try, and I did get pictures, so I decided to blog it. There are lots of fancy ways to do this on the web, but here’s how we did it:
Step 1:Pick flowers & pretty leaves
Step 2: Put a napkin in a book, and place flowers to press. Cover with another napkin.
|I had to take this pic twice.. I got in trouble, because
I wasn’t fast enough to get her struggling to pick the pot
up the first time…so she faked it for a retake LOL!
