This activity introduces children to a wide variety of vegetables or fruits.
Vegetables and fruit from each colour group (red, yellow/orange, blue/purple, green, white/brown)
How to Play
- Organize snack menu so that each day of the week offers a different colour vegetable or fruit (i.e. Monday - red; Tuesday - yellow/orange; Wednesday - blue/purple; Thursday - green; Friday - white/brown).
- When serving the snack each day, talk to children about the colour you are eating.
Modification for children who come with their own snack:
- Children identify the colour of their fruit or vegetables in their lunch bag.
- When preparing for snack time, children talk about the colours they are eating.
