Taste and Smell: Does your taste come from your smell?
What you need
- Any condiments, spreads, butter, jam, etc. for tasting
- Items you can cover your kid’s nose and eyes (We used bandana, hat, and facial tissue for the nose)
- Any board (e.g., cardboard) for hiding the spoons (optional)

We used peanut butter, maple syrup, jam, steak sauce, and chocolate syrup for tasting.
We covered his eyes with bandana and hat; also, we stuffed nose with facial tissue.
Finally, we covered the spoon just in case. Then taste one by one, and my son guessed what he was eating. He realized some of the tastes were very hard to tell without smelling. One thing I regret about this experiment was not taking the result. We were too excited to write them down!
