🌈 rose petals

Have you noticed the flowers are blooming outside. Perhaps you have some flowers in your garden or when you go for a walk you can see roses in peoples gardens. Stop and smell them. What do you notice about them? Do they all smell the same?

Can you remember the names of the different parts of a flower?

petal, leaf, bud, stem, pollen. Be careful when you’re looking at roses though as they have thorns. Do you know why roses have thorns? Can you find out?

If you can, gather some of the petals that have fallen and bring them home, (lots of petals are falling off their plants)

You could arrange them into your own flower picture.

Or you could put them in a flower press.

Or you could make a picture using the petals, you could draw them and write some rose names down.

You could make your own rose petal perfume. Here’s a link to show you how. https://livingmontessorinow.com/fabulous-practical-life-make-rose-petal-perfume-montessori-monday/

Did you know there are so many different types of roses that are grown all over the UK and they each have their own name. I wonder what your favourite roses are called and what they look like. Can you draw them?
