Touch Program for Toddlers and Smell Program for Preschoolers

I forgot to try the idea of taping contact paper, sticky side up onto one table to make a sensory station.

Here is the letter Tt worksheet found by searching Google Images: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0ByZSJgcQD22tWmcxTVFZVXRlQmc/edit?usp=sharing

Here are textured "stickers" that toddlers can peel and stick to the Tt touch worksheet:

The Human Body app allowed a child to drag something smelly to the nose.  If it was a food item, the child could see the mouth salivate.  I ended up doing this at the end of the program, since I was having technical difficulties during the program (with the new iOS).

The "smell" jars were small plastic, cylindrical containers from Big Lots.  I had wanted to mash banana in one, have a cinnamon stick in another, a green pepper in the third, and a slice of orange in the fourth.  I ended up putting small, solid perfume samples in them and covered with foil so one couldn't see what was inside.  I poked holes in the top of the foil.
