Daily Dose: Scratch and Sniff

Here’s today’s dose of nature connection ideas!

Flash connection: Scratch and Sniff

Find some nearby plants that you’re curious about. Give their flowers or leaves a gentle scratch or squeeze and then smell the plant (or your fingers that touched them). Can you find any surprising smells?

Adventure: Leaf and Flower Pounding

You will need paper or white fabric and a rock. Gather a basket full of leaves and flowers of different colors. Place one of your treasures on the paper or white fabric. GENTLY pound the back side until the color bleeds through. Sometimes the color of the flower or leaf is not the color that appears on your paper when you pound. Why? What is the most color that comes out of your items?
