create (with kids): flower press

By freshlyplanted - 9:01 AM

Once upon a time, we were going to have a baby. And we didn't have clothes or diapers or a crib, but I did have this...

...because it's all about the important things, right? (wink) Finally it was time to unite Isia with the first present her Mama ever got her. And of course, paint! Because, again, it's all about the important things.

Isia's fascinated with her hands right now. They're showing up a lot in her paintings, and she's been tracing them onto her drawings. I agree with her, hands are pretty extraordinary things- especially when they're small and chubby.

Then we picked our blooms, laid them on the pages, and tightened. Now we just need to wait! Hmm... one flower press for two kiddos? I'm thinking next summer we might need to fashion some of our own out of cardboard and rubber bands, like this one from Pink & Green Mama or this one from 5 Orange Potatoes. I especially like the idea of decorating the top with your own pressed flowers. Oh, and wouldn't a home-made flower press make a sweet birthday gift for a little friend? With several of those coming soon, we might not wait until next summer after all!
