Name that smell winner

Thanks for playing the little smell/spelling game. Here are the correct answers:

1. Nuffing (nothing), which apparently smelled really great.
2. Soap.
3. Cotton balls.
4. Cinnamon.
5. Coffee.
6. Pickles.
7. Soap.

I have to say that I am hugely relieved that some of you also saw the "P" word and the "S" word when you first looked at her list (which I'd actually spell out, but I'm afraid of the google searches that would land here on account of those two words). Good to know that I'm not the only one with a mind that goes right to the gutter.

Thanks for playing, and congratulations to Ashlee, who guessed them all right before anyone else. Email me your address and I'll send you something chocolatey and delicious.

I am still interested to know what cotton balls smell like. Congrats Ashlee!!

Ashlee said...

First of all, I'd like to thank the Academy....
I want to know what cotton balls smell like to her too! :0) Thanks so much for the fun!

Congrats Ashley...and thanks to the Princess for making this such an exciting contest!

Still curious to hear why one soap smelled bad and the other good.

Yay for Ashley!
Figures, I never win anything!! She's genius that she guessed "nothing" and "pickles". Those two had me in a 'pickle'.

Congrats, Ashlee!

Great contest - I love seeing how kids that age sound out words. She is doing a great job!

Congrats to Ashlee!

I think number 4 threw me off for number 6.

Yes! I knew them all! All those years teaching school taught me to decipher a lot. I didn't want to brag and ruin the fun for everyone else though...

Cute idea!

dang, I had em all right except for my soup/soap fiasco... and "nothing"?? did she know we would be playing a game and wanted to trip us up??

smart girl.

katie said...

oh and to be honest... I had Jaden read them for me (my seven year old) - easy day

Bridget said...

What kindergarten teacher uses cotton balls for a smelling game? Huh?

Kristy said...

Okay, I'm not sure what's funnier: your daughter's inventive spelling, or your fellow-bloggers interpretations/comments! I laughed out loud on several of them.

I don't know how I missed this particular game, but I love it. Way to go teaching Hannah the facts of life at a tender age.

I missed the game too, but it was still very entertaining.

Christie, you are so awesome to have fun contests :)

Congrats to Ashlee...I cheated off of her...but at least I am honest about being dishonest, right?
