I saved a couple week’s worth of grocery store ads, which we put to use for a few easy projects today. We cut out a big pile of food pictures — I ended up doing most of the cutting, but this would also be a great opportunity for little ones to practice their scissor skills.
We made paper plate meals
and restaurant menus.
We still have quite a few cut-outs left. We might sort our foods into food groups or make a food pyramid. Check out the new food pyramid and healthy eating guide for kids at the USDA website.
Well, my kids are busy setting up a restaurant for dad when he gets home. Have fun exploring with your kiddos this weekend!
