Colored pencils that smell.
They are the latest craze at my son’s elementary school.
So we worked a deal.
Stay on green a really long time and we can order some.
(His teacher uses red, yellow and green for behavior just like the stop sign.)
Another mother asked me if she thought I should encourage my son to sniff things.
Goodness… I was using them as a reward and I fancy school supplies even as an adult.
I even have my special stash of fine point markers I rarely share. : )
My son played a smell game with me.
I closed my eyes and he made me smell each pencils and guess it’s name.
I only recognized one scent out of nine.
I’m going to blame it on my allergies.
I wondered if I could use this to my advantage.
I could close my eyes, eat spinach and pretend it was chocolate cake.
I think Santa is going to bring holiday Smencils this year.
They have gingerbread, pumpkin and lots of other yummy scents.
