Okay this project was one we will do again real soon. The boys loved this one and because we did pictures for fall we used nice fall spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, thyme and italian seasoning spices.
We let the children smell them and talk about how it smells and what it looks like and feel like.
Spices (of your choice)
Afterwards the children smelled their pictures and exchanged them with each other and described the smells.
So stop and smell the art, this was something we just made up and it turned out really fun. We werent sure how the children would take the smells but they loved smelling it and feeling the different textures. Cinnamon has a different feeling than italian seasoning and different smell.
Its great multi sensory learning here, smelling, touching and for certian spices like cinnamon a taste too.
