1. Grab your favorite potato head and ask an adult to help you print off this senses spinner. Ask a friend or sibling to play with you and see who can give their potato head all 5 senses first!
2. You can experience all 5 senses with pop rocks! What do you hear, see, touch, taste, and smell? Parents don’t want you to have candy? No problem! Experience all 5 senses by popping popcorn.
