My 3 and 4 year old family day care group have been showing a lot of interest in the lavender growing in the garden the past few weeks. We have done a few activities with the lavender but I had promised that we would make some special perfume as soon as there were enough flower heads so one beautiful Winter's morning that's exactly what we did and I think I enjoyed it as much as them!
It's always an adventure to get outside the family day care gate and head off to explore….
I explained to the girls that we would be leaving them on the rack in the sun while we had a rest and by then the water would have taken on the smell of the lavender and rose geranium leaves.
They were soon very busy selecting their leaves with tweezers, scoops, spoons or fingers and filling their special bags.
What could you do with something from the garden this week?
