Smell Like a Salmon

Punkin's favorite topic is the human body, so we have almost completely abandoned our curriculum and instead are finishing the school year doing some fun activities about the body.

Today's focus was the sense of smell and taste. We played a little game called "Smell like a Salmon". (The idea is from this book lest you think I'm this creative.) We put vanilla and garlic on cottonballs and then the kids closed their eyes and followed the trail of vanilla or garlic cotton balls. It was quite fun!

I wish I had video. Can you imagine the kids crawling around our family room, eyes closed, sniffing?

Next year is sure gonna be different!

That sounds like fun!
Thanks for your homeschooling encouragement. :) I am so excited to get started! I will definitely let you know if I have questions. It is so good to have so many "veterans" willing to help!

Oh thank goodness! I thought you were giving instructions on how to create a new perfume. ;-D

The book sounds really cute. I'd like to do a lot of activities with JS this summer.
