Bring your child for a day of family fun where children will be introduced to the unique and amusing characteristics of herbs and spices. We will find out more about their historical significance, scents and amazing properties. We will explore herbs such as the pandan leaf, lemongrass, lime leaf, curry leaf and many more. We will also take a closer look at spices such as cloves, cardamoms and cinnamon sticks. Working together as team, you will also learn how to make pomanders and herb sachets to scent your home!
