Food Week 2017

In a little over a week we will be celebrating Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is time to enjoy family, friends and food. This week at preschool we will be exploring the world of food. At the art table we are making satsuma turkeys with fruity o’s for feathers.  The Pre-3 and 3s classes will be making vegetable prints. There will be measuring cups and kitchen tools in the sensory table, as well as, kitchen tools to use with the play dough. There will be food puzzles at table toys, and of course, lots of opportunities for food conversation in the dramatics area.

Fun Food Activities for Home:
(Due to allergies we will have limited food activities at school, but these are two fun ones to do with your child at home.)

Ingredients and items needed: wheat bread, milk, food coloring, pastry brush, toaster, plastic knives
Have your child brush the toast with milk that has been colored with a small amount of food coloring (they can paint shapes, faces, etc.). Now, toast the bread!

OR:  Make your toast and then have your child top it with apple butter, applesauce, yogurt, sliced bananas or other fruit you may choose!

In a blender add yogurt of choice, ice cubes, milk or juice, any kind of fruit you like (veggies too). Have your child cut up the bananas with a plastic knife, wash the blueberries, pull the grapes off the stem, etc.
Let them measure, pour and push the buttons on the blender.
Blend and enjoy!
