One of my favorite winter smells. I found that by poking the holes for her with the pick that comes with the nutcracker, even my 2 year old could enjoy sticking the cloves into the oranges. Neither one of them completed a full orange to the extent I like to see but that wasn’t the point now, was it? They worked hard and enjoyed themselves for a good 20 minutes or more. I didn’t pay too close attention. I was busy with my own pomander after all.

We did this and I thought it was pretty fun. I was disappointed that the scent of pomanders didn’t really last past the initial activity. Maybe I did something wrong.

mmmmm… i do love the smell. the last time i did it i remember it being really hard to get the cloves in, so i haven’t wanted to do it since. i don’t have a nutcracker pokey-thing, but i do have some paper awls that might do the trick!
