Crystal over at Growing A Jeweled Rose came up with a wonderful sensory pretend play exercise that we know your preschoolers will have a ball with! Perfect for spring explorations {or even Mother's Day activities}, we love that it makes use of natural elements, combining different textures and smells... 

Supplies You'll Need

  • Mixing bowls in assorted sizes
  • Spoons, whisks, etc.
  • Measuring cups
  • Fresh flowers
  • Essential oils {Crystal suggests lavender and rose}
  • Water
  • Food coloring

If you can manage, do this activity outside to cut down on the mess and to allow your students a chance to explore the materials freely.
