Make your own potpourri

Here’s another fun project the kiddos and I have been doing this summer. Jenna(3) likes to pick flowers anyway, and Bruce(7) likes to rip things up, so I thought “Why now combine those two activities into one?” Now they are both on an almost daily campaign to make potpourri for future Christmas presents.


  • rose petals
  • lavender flowers
  • lavender leaves
  • lemon balm leaves
  • a few dahlia petals for color
  • (or whatever you have in your garden that smells good)


  • Dry the ingredients on a cookie sheet for about a week.
  • Place in jam jar.
