Montessori Activity: Matching Scents

Age: From 2 years old.

Activity Duration: 5-15 minutes

Preparation Time: 5 minutes


1. To refine the child’s sense of smell.
2. To increase the child’s understanding and vocabulary of different smells.


1. 2 sets of 4 containers with lid each containing matching pairs of scent (I use Chinese tea, Earl Grey, Coffee powder and chocolate powder)

2. Cotton gauze to conceal the item in the container.

3. 1 tray


1. Show your child by selecting a container from one set, opening the lid and sniffing the scent.

2. Then find the matching container from the other set. Once found, set the pair aside and repeat the process with the remaining containers.

3. Encourage your child to try.
