Can you tell me a bit more about each of the products in the Flower Press Kit?
Our Flower Press Kit comes wrapped in a beautiful draw-string bag made of natural sisal hessian. Included in this kit are:
- Flower press – a lovely 210 x 100mm flower press, hand-crafted in the UK from 10mm thick birch plywood
- Cardboard trays – 8 cardboard trays, to separate layers of flowers or leaves
- Nuts and bolts – 4 stainless steel bolts and wing nuts, use these to tighten the press once your flowers have been neatly arranged
- Flower Press guide – a small, easy to follow guide on how to flower press
Who would this be appropriate for?
This kit would be great for children aged 6 and over. Flower pressing is an age-old art and is a great way to get little minds into exploring the garden or local area. Flower pressing is something that has been passed down for generations, and pressed flowers are a great way to decorate handmade cards, make wonderful pieces of art, or even frame and hang up in the living-room!
Why is it important to get children to play outdoors?
Here at Chimney Sheep, we see the value in nature play! Being outdoors is great for our mental and physical growth, education, and understanding of the world and our place in it. We want to make playing outside fun and interesting by doing something a little different. Our range of kits will provide an activity for all interests. Whether your child is arty or sporty, into bugs or flowers, we'll have a kit for them. Providing children with all they need to play and learn, leaving an enduring connection with nature and all it holds!
Research founded by The Wildlife Trust found children’s well-being increased after they had spent time connecting with nature. Children have reported their experience outside made them more confident and capable of doing new things when they tried, learned something new, and formed better relationships with classmates. More benefits of outdoor play can be found here.
