Craft Day Tuesday - Play with Your Food!

I am fortunate that all the kids that I know love their veggies!  My girls growing up loved mixed veggies - both cooked and raw.  A certain 4 year would choose broccoli or carrots over chips! Let's make food fun.

We made these simple veggie puppets with just a few items - veggie cutouts found at the dollar section, googly eyes (googly eyes make everything more fun!), popsicle sticks, tape, and a marker.
Tape the popsicle stick on the back, glue on the goggly eyes, make a happy face and...ta-da! You have veggie puppets.
So cute, right?
Baby Chameleon from Safari Ltd decided to get in on the healthy eating fun!  The fruits and veggies are from Safari Ltd Toobs.
Safari Ltd's motto is "toys that teach" - it's so true!  There's so many things you can do with this fruit and veggies toob - sorting, counting, pretend play with little animals, garden pretend play, talk about foods from around the world...sooo many ideas racing in my brain right now.
Or you could totally make a fun lunch landscape for your little ones to devour like this one.

Have a fun & playful day!
