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

We strive to create fun and informative content that will help young children learn and grow. However, it's important to keep in mind that all activities should be performed under the supervision of an adult. The Adventurous Child website is intended to serve as a reference and guidance for educational activities, and it is ultimately the responsibility of the parent, guardian, and/or educator to determine the appropriateness of the activity for their child’s age and maturity level.
