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.
