Yesterday I made up some new work using herbs and spices. I took 8 little bottles and covered them in packing tape so that you can't see inside. Then I put a selection of herbs and spices in them, a different one in each bottle.
Whilst Ebi-kun was working on snowflake punching I made up some cards to go with the bottles.
For the presentation, I asked him to lay out the plant cards with the names and read what each plant is. Then he took a bottle, sniffed the contents then tried to match it with the picture card.
If you would like a set of the cards, they are for download here on Flickr. They are free but please do not distribute them or sell them in any way. If you link to them, please let me know. Thanks.
I only used 8 spices/herbs as I thought that would be more than enough to handle in one go and I just used what I had in my cupboard but you could easily expand on this.
