A Holiday Gift
That Makes 'Scents'


Precut five-by-five inch squares of colorful fabric. Then take children on a walk outdoors to collect handfuls of pine needles. Help children place some pine needles on the back side of fabric pieces. Let children sprinkle the pine needles with clove or cinnamon. Next, help children gather up the fabric and secure it tightly with a rubber band. Add colorful yarn for a sweet-smelling gift!
