Flower Pounding

My brilliant project for today was to do “flower pounding”. Hammers + flowers could only = a beautiful project!IMG_20150918_154235783_HDR

We gathered a variety of flowers from the garden, a few hammers, paper napkins, and some printer paper.


The process is fairly simple. Place a flower (or leaf) on the paper, cover with a napkin, and pound it until you start to see the print through the napkin. Just be cautious of little fingers and let them pound away to their heart’s content!


This project was a MAJOR Pinterest fail for us! The kids had a ton of fun, but the result was a lot of blobby looking colors on paper. None that resembled flowers whatsoever!


Here are our final projects… Not exactly worthy of framing! I think it’s important to share all of our projects, even the failures. However, I am beginning to notice that any project that uses flowers seems to always be a big flop for us!
