Would you like to put your sense of smell to the test?
Have the person accompanying you choose some elements from the woods. For example a leaf, some earth, a piece of wood, a flower, a berry, or a fruit. Make sure they are collected with care and attention. Then smell them with your eyes closed and without touching them. Try and describe the smell: what do they remind you of?
And then try to guess what elements they are.
