Hammered Flower Art
With it being a sunny day we decided some outdoor art work would be good and we then went to one of our tree stumps with some paper. Each child took it in turns to arrange some flowers on the tree stump. They took great care in their arrangements, talking about what colours they wanted where.
Younger children then used a wooden mallet and the older children used the hammer. Practising their skills at using tools they hammered away at the paper that we had placed over the top of their flower arrangements. This led to some beautiful colours being transferred to the paper.
Our only slight disaster was that one child had loved the colours of the berries so we agreed to place one in the picture. This did, possibly predictably, make the paper go rather soggy!
