In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program
Place the herbs on a table. Invite the children to take turns crushing a small leaf or flower part from the herbs or gently brushing their fingertips across the plant tops, and then smelling their fingers. Or, you might gather the children in a circle and pass the herbs around.
Ask the children to describe the scents they are smelling. Ask if any of these aromas are familiar. Where have children smelled them before? Share the names of the herbs. Ask children what they think an herb might be used for, then tell them what you know or have found out about that herb.
