Then added in other smelly things like . . .

We poured perfume in small jars. So pretty!

    My sister and I used to make perfume from flowers when were little. It was so much fun. I like how you added the mortar and pestle.

    Great activity! I have to say the mortar and pestle and fancy glass bottle definitely lend a very romantic atmosphere to your fabulous perfume laboratory!

    My girls love doing this but I never thought to give them the mortar and pestle. Great idea! Now, I just need more flowers to bloom.
