Herb Painting

I set out some measuring spoons and containers of basil, parsley, and oregano.

Love Bug measured some out,

crushed them up,

and then used the flour sifter to grind them onto a paper covered with glue.

He really enjoyed this. Anything with pretend cooking elements is fun for him. And both boys just love the flour sift and are always fighting over who gets to play with it.

The flour sifter added some fine motor skills, and using the different herbs was a good sensory activity for the different scents.
