You need:
PVA glue
Paper or card
Pot pourri (the scented kind) - preferably a couple differently coloured types
Any natural objects such as shells, seeds, seed cases, leaves, twigs, dried flowers etc
Any odds and ends with interesting textures and bright colours - buttons, beads, bottle tops, strings, wools and fibres, fabrics, etc

Put out the objects in pots or dishes for your kids. Their task is to make a senses trail - a trail around their paper which tantalises all the senses (except maybe taste!!) They should try to include bright colours, patterns, different textures, different smells, and could even experiment with sounds by including things that rustle, crunch or rattle (eg beads/bottle tops threaded on string and stuck to the paper). They might want to create the trail with a piece of wool or string first. This is particularly good to do in spring and autumn when interesting natural objects can be found on walks and in the garden.

I've seen this done in school with children as young as Year 1 (5-6 year olds).
