Ask the child to open a canister and smell each scent. Then they have to find the matching scent hidden on a different cannister. Suitable for children age 18 month – 6 years old.

Playing game like this helps olfactory discrimination, improve memories and attention. Depending on the scent you choose, some scent like chamomile / lavender could help the child feel relax and calm.
