Sensory Smell Jars

Today I made a quick and easy set of sensory smell jars for my two boys (ages 1 and 3). I am always trying to find fun sensory things for them to do, especially for my 3 year old who has autism. He is hyposensitive (opposite of hypersensitive) which means he requires more stimulation to…
