Leaf Rubbings

IMG_9839 IMG_9842


The Green Rose Club was busy today. There was magic when we made leaf rubbings using wax candles and green food colouring. ( Green is our favourite colour!) There were concepts to chew on: Wax- resist, botany, Carl Linneaus and his naming of plants (taxonomy). We had fun swopping our names around as if we were plants. We thought up nicknames for Bauhinia leaves, all starting with B: butterfly tree, book leaves, bum or bottom trees, bible leaves.
