Remnants of flowers.
When life begins to drain out of the delicate petals, the colour waining slightly, is beauty gone? Lost?
Flower Petal Word Writing
A simple activity is to use tired petals (or fresh ones) from cut flowers to trace a word on a piece of paper or canvas.
I did this with my 10-year-old daughter. First, write the letters out in pencil. Then lay the petals along the lines.
Such a beautiful way to celebrate the end of the flower’s life! This activity may only take 5-10 mintues, but there’s something lovely about feeling the soft petals in your fingers while forming something new.
