Flower Embossing

First Grade Seasons Activities: Flower Embossing

What You Need:

  • Embossing foil (can be found at most craft stores)
  • Wooden stylus (or craft stick)
  • Scissors

What You Do:

  1. Cut the foil into squares or rectangles. Start small; if he is able to fill a small space, try larger squares later.
  2. Help him choose a flower to draw by looking through books or going outdoors. This entire project can actually be done outside while looking directly at the flowers for inspiration.
  3. Turn the embossing foil over. Have him use the stylus or craft stick (a small twig collected outside will also work) to draw the flower design into the foil. Make sure that he presses down firmly enough to pop out the foil on the opposite side, but not so hard that he tears it. This may take some experimentation.
  4. Ask him to turn the foil over. A pretty flower will be revealed!
  5. If he wishes, have him add extra embellishments to the blank areas on the foil.

Once he has finished the embossing, ask him to feel the design. Play a guessing game, and take turns embossing a secret object and then feeling it to guess what it is. This is a great sensory activity!
