Flower Press Kit
Product DescriptionThis Flower Fairies kit offers children and adults a new way to discover and preserve the science and beauty of nature. The kit includes a sturdy wood and metal flower press and a 32-page instruction book. The press is easy for children to assemble and to use; the two halves screw safely together to create steady pressure on treasured flowers. The full-color book explains how to identify and collect flowers, where to find them growing, and how to use the press. The flowers are arranged according to where they grow and there is a flower "factfile" for each featured species. There are also 4 pages of photographs of beautiful crafts to make with the Press Kit. Both kit and booklet are attractively decorated with by Cicely Mary Barker's lovely Flower Fairies illustrations. A terrific gift for a lover of flowers or a lover of science, the Flower Press Kit is also a great way to make and keep memories.

Wow, is it HOT! So in honor of all the sunshine,here are some Sun themed ideas:
The Birthday Sun...
The Celebration Sun is used to celebrate children’s birthdays by having them hold a globe and walk around the sun once for each year they have been on the earth. As they do so, an adult narrates a story of their development and key points of their life. It is wooden with two layers and 12 points on the bottom layer. It includes 12 wooden labels for the months of the year, numbered 1-12 on the back for control of error. Size: 12’ diameter.
Item code: 900CS
