All About Me: Smell

It is 5 Senses Week here on The Mud Pie Makers, and today we are thinking about our sense of Smell.

To get our Sniffers engaged, we first walked from room to room in our house, looking for interesting things to smell. In the bedrooms, we sniffed the clean bed-sheets, crayons, and stinky shoes. In the bathroom, we smelled the soap, the toothpaste, and the shampoo. In the living room, we stopped to sniff the fireplace, and in the laundry room we compared the smell of dirty and clean laundry.

The kitchen had lots of good things to smell...we pulled out fresh fruit, spice jars, chocolate, a cut onion, coffee, and garlic.

Later we went outside to enjoy some outdoor smells. Someone was burning leaves...definitely a favorite smell of fall! We also got down to smell the dirt and some flowers.

After all the smelling, we talked about memories of smells. Were there any smells that made them remember a trip or special day? Did smells ever make them hungry, or make their mouth water? Were there any odors that made them want to get away quick?

Finally, we settled down on the couch and read the story of The Gingerbread Man. Mmmm...does anything smell more delicious than baking gingerbread??

Afterwards, each of them got to decorate their own Gingerbread Man on this printable page here. After coloring and filling in other favorite smells, we placed glue on the tummies of the gingerbread men and they sprinkled some ginger and cinnamon spices onto it.


We let it dry awhile, and then it was a yummy scratch 'n' sniff page to put in their All About Me book. You can get more printables here and some ideas for starting an All About Me book for your child here.

Have fun enjoying what the nose knows today!
