It’s another Monday, which means another fun Unplugged Project over at the Unplug Your Kids blog. This time, the theme was food. The girls have been doing some 5 Senses projects at preschool, so I thought it would be fun to do a taste test. Once I promised not to use any foods they would consider “weird” or “yucky,” the girls were excited to give it a try.
I chose 5 mystery foods – goldfish crackers, plain cooked noodles, chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and pear. We simply had the girls close their eyes while we fed them the food. Then they guessed what it was!
They did great, and were able to guess them all. I am hoping next time, we can try some more “exotic” foods, like maybe cucumber, swiss cheese, etc. The girls also thought doing a “liquid” taste test would be fun.
On a food related side-note: I finally tried a recipe from the The Sneaky Chef cookbook. I made the bite-size Unbelievably Good Chocolate Chip Cookies. Even with the wheat germ and pureed white beans, they were quite tasty and the girls (and us!) gobbled them up. Next, I want to try the brownies — they have spinach and blueberries in them!
