Pressed Flower Fairies!

Friday July 14, 2017: 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Secret Lab

This event is intended for grade K - 5

Pressing flowers is a craft that dates back to the nineteenth century.

Use all sorts of pressed flowers and flora to make some flora fairies or whatever you imagine. We will provide all supplies but you are welcome to bring your own natural material to use for this project.

This program is in partnership with The Wonder of Learning—The Hundred Languages of Children traveling exhibit and the North American Reggio Emilia Alliance. The exhibit is on display at the U-M Stamps School of Art and Design & the James and Anne Duderstadt Center on North Campus through August 27.

The exhibit provides valuable evidence about the difference a rich, child-centered early learning environment can make in the lives of children. Such evidence is critical as we engage in a national debate around standards, testing and what kinds of educational programs best serve our children.


i cant wait

I can't wait for this! I this sounds so cool

Not Only Fairies!

While practicing this art, we learned that the flowers and leaves actually TELL you what they want to become! You may see a robot, a tree, a bridge or a maybe even a fairy! It will be fun to use your imagination. :D

Great activity

I think flowers are really beautiful on their own and don't have to be made into fairies for kids to enjoy them. Pressing flowers is a nice way to appreciate them.
