Today we made these pretty printed cloths using just flowers and leaves.
This is a great activity for little ones as it is super easy and involves whacking leaves and flowers will a mallet!
A collection of leaves and flowers (juicy ones work best), cotton fabric, wooden board and a wood or rubber mallet.
Place a board on the table or floor, layer your flowers and leaves on top then cover it with your fabric.
Hit the fabric with the mallet until the juices come out of the flowers and leaves and stain the fabric. It's as easy as that! My little ones loved whacking the flowers until they were all squashed.
