Petal Prints

Posted by: Rhonda July 24, 2018

Nature makes a stunning show at this time of year with brilliant displays of flowers both in gardens and in the wild. Here’s a fun way to capture and preserve some of that color on paper.

You’ll have to experiment with the different kinds of flowers and leaves available in your area to discover what makes the most successful prints. We found that marigolds and parsley (both abundant in our Pre-K garden) contained the most vibrant pigments. Besides flowers, all you will need is paper, wax paper, and a tree cookie or small stone to pound the petals with. Watch how to do it here.
