Your child's first flower press can be easily made from 2 - 6 inch square pieces of wooden boards, some newspaper and four - 3 inch bolts (with nuts). Sand the edges of the boards and drill holes in each of the 4 corners large enough to accommodate the bolts. Cut squares of newspaper 5 inches by 5 inches to set inside the press. If you cannot drill the boards use a belt to fasten it shut and a rock to weigh down the "press".
