This beautiful flower press kit by Moulin Roty contains two natural-finish wooden boards. The top board is printed with a garden scene. It also contains seven sheets of cardboard and twelve sheets of thick paper – providing 6 pressing layers in total. The press is held together and can be tightened by four bolts and wing nuts.
The process of collecting and then pressing plants is a great way to encourage children to engage with the natural world. The pressing and preservation of leaves and flowers etc will also provide your child with a wonderful sense of accomplishment. A flower press might encourage them to undertake that special project – whether it be for hand made gift cards, a natural artwork or even a botanical journal.
Playing with a flower press is a great way to encourage outdoor play and to nurture a caring attitude toward nature. Furthermore, the activity of searching for and collecting plant specimens can also be used to help develop learning skills. It will also help introduce the basics of the scientific/botanical process and to increase vocabulary and language skills.
Suitable for either a girl or boy, this set will provide ongoing opportunity for purposeful play.
The flower press comes packaged in an illustrated box.
