It Smells Like......

I wish I had a better picture to share with  you.  This is another way fun activity that takes A LOT of work, but the kids love it.

The paper says, mmmmmm...smells good!  It has a picture to represent these scents;
cherry, strawberry, tangerine, lime, peppermint, cinnamon, licorice, rootbeer, chocolate, banana, peach, and grape.

We used the candy flavoring oils to make our scents.  What we did was dab a little bit of each scent on a piece of cotton, which we then glued to the paper, next to the picture that represented it. I had the kids smell each cotton ball to try and decide where it went.

The kids loved it.  The only thing about this activity is that you need to stress to the kids, DON'T TOUCH YOUR FACE!  There is alwasy one who doesn't listen and touches their eyes.  It hurts like the dickens when they do it, but you can pretty much expect one of them to do it.
