Learn about Giving Gifts from the Garden

Early Learning Standards require that our children use their five senses to investigate the environment and to gather information. Using their senses, you can teach them about nature and give them something simple to bring home as well.  Children love making gifts to give to loved ones.

An herbal bath bag is something that children can make that will activate their sense of smell, sight and touch. Four easy steps:

  1. With pinking shears, cut a piece of fabric into an 8″ square
  2. Fill the center of the fabric with a handful of lavender flowers and stems
  3. Lift the edges to form a bundle and tie closed with ribbon
  4. For a muscle relaxing soak – drop the herbal bag into a tub of hot water
