Fruits and Veggies


Eva has always been a huge fan of fruits and veggies so she has been enjoying all the wonderfully tasty treats we have been getting from our garden.  We did focus a little on them during our garden week but I thought it would be fun to revisit fruits and vegetables now that they are in such abundance.

Crafts
Fruit and Veggies Prints- Eva had so much fun the last time we tried these so we'll do again using different fruits and veggies

Fruit Dyes- we'll be squishing some of our favorite fruits to produce dyes to paint with

Scrap Bin Vegetables- using scraps and other found items we'll create some fancy veggies

Activities

Lifecycle of Vegetables- in this sequencing activity Eva will be able to see how the plants in our garden went from seed to table

Farmer's Market- we'll head to the local market to collect some favorites and maybe even some new fruits to try

Shopping Checklist- we'll create a checklist using pictures for Eva to use to help me make sure we get all the produce we need on our trip to the farmer's market

Fruit Salad- Eva will once again get to practice her knife skills as we chop and dice fruit to make a tasty and healthy treat

  1. Looks like ya'll are going to have tons of fun. I never thought about using the juice from fruit to paint with. Great idea!
