Making an herbarium

Making an herbarium.

During our summer holidays in the French countryside, the kids and I decided to start an herbarium to keep memories from our long walks and places we went to.

After collecting fresh herbs (verbena, mint, rosemary, thyme, basil), flowers (hydrangea, roses, jasmine) and leaves (magnolia, prunus), we made them dry out under a pile of books for seven days.

Then we stuck them in a notebook and wrote the name, the date and the place of collection.

A very funny moment … and great memories for all of us!

See you soon to talk about satchels, backpacks and other things for the Big Kids ‘Rentrée’! 

Have a lovely summer,

Emilie.
