Having Fun with Food at Home

You can read or listen to, “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”

And then make caterpillars out of food:

Or watch Miss Cecelia read, “Green Is a Chili Pepper”

And then you could make a plate with all one color:

You can sing a song about food like, “Today I Ate a Rainbow”

Or the, “Mix, Mix, Mix It,” Song

You could make a rainbow plate:

Or try to make a plate with every plant part:

You can have your student help by:

  • Cutting herbs or leaves with scissors
  • Measuring
  • Stirring
  • Tasting along the way
  • Mashing with a fork or a potato masher
  • Wearing a glove to protect their hands so they can use a grater

You can make pictures with your food:
