We love SCENTED sensory play.  Anything I can add scent to I will try it. After doing our Apple Scented Apple Volcanoes I knew we would have to try pumpkin spice scented pumpkin volcanoes! Now to just figure out how to do this.  It took some thought but I finally came up with a way to do it and the kids loved it.  This is a great sensory and science activity for the kids.

I placed the pumpkin on a tray and the tray on a plastic tablecloth. I gave the kids a few droppers and let them take over.

They would get so excited each time the pumpkin fizzed.  This is a great hands on science experiment for the kids.
