Aroma Cards Game
Our sense of smell is important as it helps us to gather information about our environment and what is happening. It is also very closely linked to our sense of taste.
The AromaCards 'Everyday Life' collection comprises a set of six fragrances: banana, toothpaste, chocolate, strawberry, soap and ice cream. These are matched to six AromaCards - picture cards depicting everyday events associated with each fragrance: eating a banana; brushing your teeth; having a chocolate drink; eating a strawberry; washing your face; and licking an ice cream.
The object of the game is to match the chosen fragrance to the appropriate AromaCard. Select a fragrance, dip a bamboo stick, smell the fragrance and then attempt to match it to one of the AromaCards. The difficulty level of the game can be altered by reducing or increasing the number of AromaCards from which a selection can be made.
AromaCards fulfills certain key requirements as detailed in the National Curriculum - encouraging turn-taking, groupwork, communication, understanding of personal experience and logical thought of development.
The collection consists of 6 x 10ml bottles of fragrance, 400 bamboo dipping sticks and 6 pictures AromaCards, and come complete in its own box.
