Spring scents activity

Gather sweet- or rich-smelling items and create a woodland perfume.

Take a deeeeeeeep breath next time you’re in the woods. What can you smell?

  • Collect your favourite scents and pop them into an empty yoghurt pot
  • Do they smell strong, sweet, earthy?
  • Smells can come from all sorts of places – sticks, flowers, leaves…

Does early spring have a different smell to late spring?
