Today we tested our sense of smell. I put different scents in jars wrapped in paper and covered with a mesh top. I used scents that have fairly strong smells. There was ketchup, banana, sunbutter and the soap we use in the bathroom. The soap was the hardest thing to guess and the sunbutter was mistaken for peanut butter. The children immediately guessed ketchup and banana. After kids identified all of the scents we played another guessing game. I asked the children, “Which number has the banana in it?” The children used only their sense of smell to figure it out. We noticed that children who had stuffy noses had a harder time guessing the smells!
