Spiced Name Activity for Five Senses Preschool Theme

During our first week of preschool with my 3 1/2 year old, we explored the Five Senses.  

As I shared in our Preschool Themes post, each day we explored a different "subject" all while sticking with a weekly theme. 

 I also tried to be extra conscious of relating our daily activities to our five senses.  

Today I'd love to share our Spiced name recognition activity with you!

Preschool Five Senses Theme

  • spices
  • glue
  • marker
  • sheet of paper 

This name recognition activity is a sure way to engage your sense of smell... and touch... and maybe taste {but I would highly warn against doing that!}.

Write your child's name on the piece of paper with a marker.

Set out several spices and some glue.  I poured our spices in an empty egg container because some of our spices were missing the lids with holes.

Show your child how to follow the letters of his/her name with the glue.

Then have your child  use his/her fingers, spoon, and/or spice shaker to shake spices onto the glue.

Enjoy exploring your sense of smell!!
