Family Fun with Flower Pressing Art | mimi mono

Here at mimi mono, we are nature lovers and are always looking for fun ways to integrate that into our lives, aside from what we wear. Cultivate your green thumbs even when you are indoors and do not have any experience, which makes flower pressing the perfect art activity with your little one! Pressed flower art consists of drying flower petals and leaves to flatten. As most flowers soon wither once plucked, one way to preserve them is by pressing. This activity is a simple way to teach your child about preserving a moment in time and beauty.

What you'll need: 

  • A collection of flowers or leaves 
  • Glue
  • Scissors 
  • A heavy book 
  • 2 X parchment papers 
  • Paper backdrop
  • Photo Frame

What to do: 

1. Collect some colourful flowers and leaves (please do not pluck from public land!) 

2. Lay them flat on parchment paper and ensure that they do not overlap with each other.

3. Cover with another piece of parchment paper and lay a heavy hardcover book on top.

4. Leave them to dry for a few day.

5. Once flattened and dried, lightly brush with glue on the back of the flowers and petals and attach them to a new piece of paper, which will be the backdrop.

6. Lastly, allow the glue to dry before framing.
