The Jelly Babies adored doing this activity, just as much as I used to as a child. There is something so satisfying about capturing the beautiful scent of the fallen rose petals.

Collect a jam jar full of rose petals (we nipped to a local park for our petals.)

Fill another empty jam jar with water and transfer the petals to the jam jar of  water. Put the jam jar lid on and shake.

Transfer the contents of the jam jar to another bowl. Begin to squash the rose petals with a potato masher. Then gently squeeze the petals to release their scent.
