Love the smell of flowers? Find out what your kids think!

Stop and smell the flowers every now and then and appreciate the small things in life. Take time out to create some beauty with simple things. Kids are going to love raiding the bathroom cupboard for the supplies in this art activity for 4 – 9 year olds.  While you do this craft you can talk about the sense of smell with your child and what it means to them and how they use it.
