Select an assortment of spices, (cinnamon, pepper, nutmeg, coffee, ginger, coriander, cumin, oregano, etc.).
Set the spices out on a table. With your child, name, smell and explore the scents. Pour small amounts on different napkins or in lids of jars and have your child match up the spice to the jar by smell, color, texture, etc.
Encourage your child to help set up and clean up the activity. A small hand broom and dust pan are very handy to have available.
