Drying herbs with kids

As I harvest our herbs in our organic herb garden I wanted to take a time to teach the kids how to dry herbs. So, one morning after we harvested a mix of herbs, we took them into the kitchen and the kids separated the leaves from the stems (not necessary but they enjoy doing that).

After the leaves were all removed, we set them on the cookie sheet and left it to dry for a week.

Once they were dried we made a yummy tea by seeping the dried herbs in boiled water for about 5 minutes and sweetened with raw honey.
