Lunch by numbers

Lunch by Numbers

Welcome back to our “Exploring Numbers through the the Senses Series”! This is the third post in and we are exploring numbers through taste… kind of…. Forgive me that I don’t quite know how to TASTE numbers. What I decided to do was help build a conceptual understanding of quantity (totally numbers related!), and I’m…

Fall Leaves Painted Toast

While I may not be a bento lunch mom, I do like to let my kids play with their food every now and then! Our construction Zone Buffet has been hugely popular, and our Name Recognition Toast was a great way to incorporate some literacy into our snack. Today I’m sharing a fun fall themes…

Name recognition Snack- a fun activity and snack for preschoolers!

Name Recognition Snack

My boys love bread and butter. I usually offer it with some fruit, this time we just made the bread a little extra special! Both my boys had a great time with this snack and learning activity! It’s actually something we have done before (see “Letterpress Toast“),  but I’m bringing it back for this week’s…

Construction Zone Buffet

My kids are crazy about tractors. I attribute it to a grandpa who is a tractor driver (or heavy equipment operator, as he puts it).  These mini tractor toys have been a playtime staple in the house and we’ve used them in SO many activities (see a whole list of ways to play with tractors…

Mini Watermelon “Popsicles”

{For your convenience, this post may contain affiliate links}   Okay, so you are probably wondering why the word popsicle in in parenthesis. The thing is, these aren’t real popsicles. They’re just pure, delicious watermelon in all it’s glory 🙂 However, they can be frozen for a really cold treat! Read on for the super…

Delicious and simple jello dessert that looks amazing!

Jello Cloud Parfaits

{For your convenience, this post may contain affiliate links}   These Jello cloud parfaits make a fun and elegant dessert (is it even possible to be fun and elegant?!? It is here!), and they are incredibly simple! To be honest, I actually made these for my kids when we did a preschool cloud unit! But I…

Conversation Heart Toast

{For your convenience, this post may contain affiliate links}    I will be the first to admit I don’t like conversation hearts. At least not the original ones, but I can eat the tangy kind all day long! And they are in every single store and at every singe check out aisle right now. I’ve been…

Snowman Soup

This post contains affiliate links   After our successful “Melt a Snowman” activity, I really wanted to incorporate more snowmen fun into our day…maybe in the form of a fun food idea… then it hit me:  Snowman Soup! My family loves baked potato soup, but I really didn’t have the time or energy to make it today.…

Honey Fried Bananas

My boys LOVE bananas. It is the first thing they ask for when they wake up. Unfortunately, they’re also pretty picky about their ‘nanas. They must be perfectly yellow, without blemish or bruise, and they absolutely cannot be broken (that last one is important-we’ve had many a meltdown because of broken bananas!) So when they…

Letterpress Toast

The beauty of a letterpressed invitation or card is something I admire. I love running my fingers along the indentations of each letter and admiring the depth and beauty it adds to the occasion it is announcing. Letterpress adds  an element of formality and class that can’t be replicated with modern printing techniques. That being…
