This activity is one of my favourite things to do with my tiny one in the spring and summer months. It is so simple yet produces absolutely beautiful results. It treads lightly on the earth as you can use weeds or dead headed flowers plus it is accessible to everyone who has a freezer. No special equipment is needed and no extra costs are incurred.
4. Place the flowers and petals into ice cube trays, small containers or even discarded egg shells. Pour water over the top and place in the freezer overnight.
5. Once frozen you can pop out the flower ice cubes and admire your handiwork. Perhaps even take some photos or draw and paint the trapped flowers? Additionally, Some flowers create a very pretty stain, almost watercolour like once they start to defrost and you can use this to paint with.
6. Once defrosted you can add to your compost bin or create perfume like my tiny one prefers to make with the defrosted petals!
