    Special Activities


    Eating healthy food helps our bodies grow and stay strong. There are different food groups we should eat.

    Eating the Alphabet

    Do NOT Eat the Color Green

    “Apples and Bananas”


    We are going to be tasting various colors of apples to see which color is our favorite. We will also be predicting how many seeds will be inside of each apple.

    To help us make healthy choices we are going to sort different foods into their food groups


    There are many different tools that are used in cooking.

    Little Red Hen

    Milk Comes From Cows

    “On Top of Spaghetti”

    Just like the Little Red Hen, we are going to make some bread and butter to share with one another.

    We are going to use some cooking tools in the sensory table to practice our pouring and whisking skills.

    We will also play a math board game.


    Some chefs and cooks go to school to learn how to cook.

    Stone Soup

    Dragons Love Tacos

    We are going to see the Kitchen at Whitney Center and have Sous Chef Carson show us his cooking skills! We will be leaving at 9:15, and return around 11:30


    Sweet treats like cookies, cakes, and brownies are made by Bakers.


    Betty Bunny Loves Chocolate Cake

    “The Baker Song”

    The children will be creating/decorating their own cupcakes in our “Cupcake Factory”.

    We will be practicing our math skills in a chocolate chip cookie matching game.



    Bakers and Chefs sometimes use recipes to make their food.

    Who Stole the Cookie

    The Duchess Bakes a Cake


    “Donut Shop”

     We are going to make our very own recipe books so that we can practice our cooking skills at home!

    We will also be following a recipe to make a delicious sweet treat.

    Changes to the Environment

    The dramatic play center will have a restaurant and farmers market. The children will be able to shop for their ingredients and prepare them in the kitchen at the restaurant for their guests. On Thursday the restaurant will be turned into a bakery where the children will be able to create some sweet treats.
