“The Child should live in an environment of beauty”. - Dr. Montessori
Whether it be the home or school, an inviting, beautiful, and peaceful space is the ideal environment for learning.
It allows for focused, calm, and independent play, even in young toddlers.
And it’s so simple to do:
One of our favourite art tools has quickly become the flower press.
It’s a great way to save your child’s outdoor treasures and make something beautiful from them.
We have one that I recently added to the website for only $19!
Simply press the flower or leaf between the cardboard, tighten down the wingnuts, and let it dry.
Once dry you can use the flowers or leaves in art projects or for card making.
Children find it so exciting to open the press and re-discover their old treasures.

And if you decide to get one, please share your child’s lovely art with us! We’d love to share it on Instagram.
