First we sampled different types of "smells" from both candles (Vanilla and Pink Grapefruit) and spices (onion powder, paprika, cloves, and cinnamon).
We discussed what smells each child liked and disliked. Children were then given word cards to assist them in filling in the blanks for "I like the smell of __________________" and "I dislike the smell of __________________". We compared and contrasted children's responses. Many agreed that they did not like the smell of paprika. Most of the children liked the Vanilla candle or Pink Grapefruit candle, as well as cinnamon.
