Aggressive Flower Art

You would never think that boys would be attracted to doing art with flowers.  Add a hammer into an art project and you have their attention.  I am entitling this post "Aggressive Flower Art" because you get to SMASH things! Follow these easy instructions for a quick art project.

Materials needed:
   1.blank white paper
 2.a hammer
3.Some colorful flowers

 Simply hammer the flower completely so each part of the flower shows up on the white page.  If you hit the flower too hard the petals and stem will become part of the paper.  You do want the flower petals and stem to peel off the paper. 


 As you can see in the background of this picture there are some smooth rocks, we tried to do the flower smashing with them.  It could work with a smooth rock if you are in a pinch, but the hammer works best to get the clearest flower picture. 
 These creations can be cut out and added to cards or scrapbooks.  The possibilities are endless!
