Last week I wrote a guest post on The Crafty Crow where I shared instructions for making Pounded Flower Bookmarks. This high-energy (and very loud) art activity tied in with one of our favorite kids+art books, A Day With No Crayons.
The set-up only requires a handful of colorful flowers, a pounding tool (like a rock or hammer), watercolor or other heavy paper, wax paper, a hole puncher, and ribbon. My daughter couldn’t get enough of this project, probably because she has big energy and lurved all that pounding.
Special thanks to Cassi for inviting me to join her on her fabulous site. If you don’t already know about The Crafty Crow, Cassi curates an incredible selection of beautiful crafts and process-based activities for children from around the web.

Hello Rachelle, your blog is fantastic! Totally inspired by you and so happy to find a good use of the remaining flower petals in our yard. Thank you for this brilliant idea!
Once you ve pounded enough, flip the paper over and carefully brush off the remains of the flower. Allow the paper to dry before cutting to size and, if you like, adding a ribbon to the top to help mark your place.
