This is actually an activity that Sam and I did last spring, but I never got around to blogging about it. With gardens full of fresh flowers, summer is the perfect time of year to give this fabric printing technique a try. And you heard me right, this is something you can certainly do with your young child, as soon as they show an interest in using a toy hammer.
Here are the supplies you will need for this project:
variety of fresh cut flowers or petals
plain, cotton fabric in a white, cream or light colour (1/2 yard piece would be good, especially if doing with a younger a child, although you can use smaller pieces of fabric once you get the hang of it)
a hammer (even a toy hammer will do, if it has a bit of weight to it)
