This was a fun month to create. I love singing the Rosemary song a I worked on the illustrations and Rosemary really spoke to me drawing wise. I drew her several times in this issue, more than I normally draw an individual plant.
Rosemary is a lot like Dandelion in that her medicine is used a lot as food (although tinctures are quite a valid form of medicine). This month, kids will learn to make an herbal vinegar, oil and honey as well as soap and shampoo. They’ll have fun creating Rosemary butter and a Rosemary wreath.
As usual, there are lots of fun games to help kids remember all the important facts about Rosemary: a crossword puzzle, maze, word search, word scramble, decipher page and matching game plus facts about Rosemary and a story of how rosemary helped one little boy remember his tasks.
