Pressed Flower Fairies!
Friday July 14, 2017: 1:00pm to 2:30pm
Downtown Library: Secret Lab
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 [https://wonderoflearning.umich.edu|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.
