Pressed Flower Bookmarks
Capture the essence of springtime with a pretty pressed flower keepsake! Investigating the blooming beauties around them is a great opportunity for children to dive into some flower science, and this fine motor skill-boosting activity encourages reading, too. Best of all, these bookmarks adorned with flowers native to your neighborhood make especially simple, inexpensive gifts for family or friends.
It's best to collect flowers on sunny days, when they are free from any dampness. Go on a nearby hike or walk around your neighborhood to look for colorful flowers and interesting plants that catch your child's eye. Just be sure that the area allows picking flowers, or that they ask the owner of the residence for permission.
