Hyenas and African painted wild dogs are olfactory predators; animals that find their prey through smell. Put your nose to the test!

Adults, collect opaque plastic containers (like those used for frosting or margerine) and poke a few small holes in the lids. Place a different fragrant item like a flower, spice, or essential oil in each and pop the lids on top.

What does the nose really know? Have your kiddo sniff, sniff, and guess the scent! Can they match the scent to the item?
