Activity: Vegetables: Broccoli, Carrots and Lettuce
Share some facts about theses vegetables. Show the children attractive and easy recipes and plan on making one soon!
For this presentation it would be great to have the actual vegetables on hand to touch, hold and smell.
Have some cut-up vegetables ready for snack with the children's favorite dressing or just their favorite yogurt.
Broccoli - Carrots - Lettuce
Activity: Vegetable Basket Craft
Here is a craft that will help the children remember these vegetables and it can be used as a note holder or just as a cute decoration..
Print the templates of your choice in color or black and white.
Ideally the black and white version is more challenging so they can color or paint.
The basket can be printed directly onto any color of construction paper or card stock, and then the vegetables in black and white.
Cut out images, older children may be able to practice their scissor
cutting skills particularly with the basket image.
Remember you need to eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables day!
