In the Martin & Sylvia: Saturdays! story “A Hunting Morning,” Martin, Sylvia and Laura go on a treasure hunt in the Brown’s orchard and hay field. They are encouraged to use their noses like fox hounds - and you can too!
Here’s how: gather together a bunch of strong smelling things like rosemary, mint, pine cones, cinamon buns, soap, etc and hide them in a room. Then give a list of all the smelling things you hid to a friend and have them use their noses to find them!
