Science: What is that delicious smell?

Just like Olive used her sense of smell to get her back to the North Pole that foggy night in Olive, the Other Reindeer, today’s science is all about exploring the sense of smell.

You need:

  • 1 orange
  • 2 Tbs Cinnamon
  • 1 packet instant Hot Cocoa
  • 1 fir tree bough (or scented candle)
  • 1 Candy cane
  • 5 small containers
  • 1 Blindfold

Put each of the items into the small containers. I broke up the candy cane, orange and the tree bough to help the smell be strong.

Blindfold your child and have them smell one item at a time. As they are smelling the item, ask them to use different describing words, if they like the smell or not, etc.

Happy exploring!

This is a great activity to go with Olive, the Other Reindeer. Find all the funĀ HERE!
