umm do u mean the corn snkes themselves smell or the viv they are in smells? (sorry didnt quite get which one you meant from your post). if it is the viv it could be that the corn had hidden the poo some where mine quite often does that.
As regards to having fun im not really sure what snakes do for fun or even if they do like to chill and play. ive got my adult corn snake some vines for his viv which he loves to climb around on, also i assume my snake enjoys burrowing through his substrate so i always try to give a thick enough layer for him to burrow through. you could try either of those for your corn though i dunno how old they are but u mite want to only put small branches or vines in since they are only young and dont want them getting hurt.
hope that helps if any more questions just pm me

the corns smell- not lots and lots but just a musky smell of poo lol ive checked the viv but cant find poo lol, i put some bamboo sticks in there with laces around them for grip they kinda like it, havent really seen them using they just hide and poke there heads out if i say hello lol, there are about 3 months old maybe older, about 35cm long.

if its the snakes that smell then they could have either slithered through there own poo in which case just give them a tepid bath im not sure on exact temps the water should be maybe u could ask some other members that or the other thing it could be there defense mechanism which is known as musking its quite common among young snakes but they do grow out of it
again hope it helps

dnt worry bout the smell hun..corns unfortunatly do smell..the best thing u can do is to take out the poo as soon as u see it..i keep an air fresher in the rep room which i spray everyday and keep a window open at all times..that does help alot!

Yes put some vines in there for him to climb and a defo a hide..mine likes to sit on it and watch the world go by . hope all this helps mate. x
