Take your little one on an adventure with their senses by creating this activity from items around your home. This is a lovely activity for babies to explore using their sense of smell.

  • An old pair of tights
  • Items of strong smell (such as, garlic, coffee, lavender, herbs, lemons, flavoured tea)


  1. Cut each leg of the tights horizontally into sections.
  2. Tightly tie one end of each piece of tight.
  3. Fill with your smelling items. Then tightly tie the other end.
  4. Pass to you little one to smell & for older children, try to guess the smell.
