Flower Pressing with Hape!

Saturday, July 06, 2019

For those of you who follow me on instagram, you may know that we recently bought our first home! Which is so exciting and terrifying, all at the same time. One of my favourite things in the house we are renting at the moment, is the garden. Our new house has a small and overgrown garden which will need a lot of work, but won't be ready for planting flowers in for some time. So when Hape sent me their new Flower Press Art DIY Kit, I was super excited.

The kids really enjoyed picking some of their favourite flowers from the garden (mainly because I'm always telling them not to pick them usually!) and then arranging them onto the paper for pressing. I'm going to frame the flower prints to put up in our new house.

I think things like this are really helping my children to come to terms with the fact we are moving house soon. They have both been a bit anxious about it and are always asking questions about what we are taking with us and what we are leaving behind. It's also nice to take some memories of this house with us too. Even though it was just a rental property, our kids have both grown up here and it's been home to us for about 3 years.

You can buy the flower press here from Amazon.
