This week we're talking about our sense of smell. We started the day by making smelly rice! First, we colored a cup of rice with about 2 teaspoons of hand sanitizer and 4 drops of food coloring. Stir, stir, stir. Then she made two other colors, for a total of three.
Next, Joss sample smelled several different spices and food flavorings, to see which she wanted to use. She ended up with pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and almond flavoring, one to each colored rice.
She did NOT like the butter flavoring scent!!
Next we spread them out and put them out on the porch to dry while we went to the library.
KT took a break from working with Grumpy outside to go to the library with us. She's getting a lesson in using the pressure sprayer to clean furniture and the pavilion, and in using spray paint today.
After lunch, Joss brought her smelly rice in and mixed it all together in a tub with some other naturals (dried orange slices, pinecones, fall leaves, dried okra). The played with the rice for quite a while, and it smelled fabulous! Just like fall. Then she tried to get the seeds out of the dried okra pods - that took her quite a while!
Next we went out to check on the progress outside - they were almost done. KT did a great job!
Then it was time to swim! Ahhhhh....so cool and refreshing.
Practicing jumps today!
