Life has been very busy here at the Creative Family household, so I've been very pleased to have been able to provide you with some fabulous guest posts. Today, I'd like to welcome Malia from Playdough to Plato. Take it away Malia!
- The Very Hungry Caterpillar book (optional)
- A pile of strong foods and weak foods
- A long piece of tape
- Two signs: One that says "strong" and one that says "weak"
Then, I invited him over to our play space. The pile of food was spread out on a tray. Directly in front of it was a piece of tape sandwiched between the signs "strong" and "weak" like this:
It was time for my son to get to work sorting. He raced from the food pile to the labels, laying each item in the right spot. Most foods landed either on the right or left side, but he decided to place a few (including this box of macaroni and cheese) smack dab in the middle since it was a little of both.
Strong-Weak was a perfect combination of fun and nutritional learning. I hope your family will enjoy this picky eater trick too!
