(Goblin is 28 months)
The weather is getting warmer and the flowers are starting to bloom. So this weekend Goblin and I played with plants.
I laid out some plants on a mat: some herbs, a bunch of flowers, some flower stems, a bowl, and a pestel and mortar. As I'd hoped Goblin used the pestel and mortar to pulverise the herbs. I got him to smell the mashed up herbs so he could see that they all had different scents. He is very funny when he tries purposefully to sniff, there is a lot of huffing and puffing involved.Montessori scent bottles with him but I think that might still be a bit beyond his reach, so this is a nice first step. He got very into smelling things and even sniffed the flower stems - but they didn't really have a scent.
