printing with plants: capturing the jungle
Printing with leaves and other natural materials is great fun! Ideally, the green cut-offs by gardeners at schools and kindergartens can be reused for this project. Especially in the tropics, the flora offers versatile shapes and lines. In the process, the children learn the names of the plants and use the leaves and other natural materials to print on recycled materials, such as cardboard, fabric and wood. The children simply experiment, for example printing a curtain or a screen – and suddenly it feels as if part of the jungle is in the classroom.
