Smelling material consists of two groups of small jars with removable caps. These bottles are identical in all respects except the aroma containing. One contains cinnamon, other mint, coffee, cloves, etc. Each bottle has a peculiar fragrance.

The food is covered by gauze or perforated so that the child can smell it but can not see it or feel it. Each bottle in the first set has a companion in the second set. The child combines the pairs smelling carefully each jar. The teacher uses this exercise as an opportunity to build vocabulary teaching him the names of the food they are smelling.

In a parallel exercise, children smell cotton swab dipped in liquids such as perfume, vanilla and vinegar. Many teachers continue this exercise carefully so that children smell flowers in the garden of the school. Some children, blindfolded, learn to identify many of the flowers for their fragrance.
