thinking about smelling peanut butterTime: 10 – 15 minutes
Materials: Jars containing various strong smelling kitchen substances like cinnamon, coffee, pepper, mint, etc.
Activity: Have your child close their eyes. Present an opened jar to your child to smell. Have them guess what it is.   After a guess is made, show them what is in the jar and talk about it.
Suggested Script:  I’m going to give you some things to smell.  I’d like for you to tell me what it is or what you think it might be.  Close your eyes and take a sniff.
Other Activities:  Use the same technique with other substances in different rooms. In the bathroom you can smell soap, shampoo, shaving lotion/cream. In the bedroom you can smell deodorant, perfume, etc.
