This activity has a few elements to it that can extend it to an all day activity! From a nature walk, to flower pressing, to pasting and creating. This should keep them busy (and learning) for quite some time.
- Make your child aware of the problem solving they are doing. "How are you going to get the bark to stay stuck to the page?" "Holding it down for a while was a great idea to get it to stick" etc
- Remember to talk with your child about what they are doing. This will help them understand the physical and mental processes they are going through as well as giving them the vocabulary to describe it.
- This activity can be repeated time and time again with a different end result each time. Mix around and change some of the materials each time to inspire new ideas
