Have you heard of Hapa Zome? It is absolutely awesome Process Art of 🌿leaf dying ~ smashing leaves and 🌸flowed with a 🔨hammer! It is also an amazing gross-motor exercise to strengthen those little hands!
Do you have leftover Spring blooms or those Mother's Day flowers that are wilting? Put them to use along with some fabric and a child-sized hammer (we are using a hammer from this set).
Fold the fabric two-fold and place flowers and leaves inside the fabric, arranging them on one side. Offer your child to hammer each flower, watching the dye transfer to fabric.
Open slowly and admire your Hapa Zome flower and leaf dye.
