Fruit Games and Activities

Strawberry Toss
Make three strawberry shaped bean bags out of red felt.   You can dot them with fine-tipped sharpie or if you have more time, you can embroider speckles on it before sewing them together. I used yellow thread. You can find a bushel basket,for the children to toss the bags into,   at a craft store like Michael's.

The Berry Best Class
Bulletin board display idea -Make a basket filled with strawberries. On each strawberry, write a child's name or glue a student's face cut from a photo.

Apple Taste Test
In the Fall there is usually a large variety of apples to choose from.  
Do a taste test.  Notice the different colors, shapes and smells of apples.  
Make a chart showing favorites.

Lemon Exploration
Ask your students (in advance) to bring in 2 or 3 lemons each. During meeting time, cut a lemon into slices, one into wedges, and leave one whole.  Let the children check out the lemons and verbalize what they see, smell and feel.  List the words offered onto a large lemon shaped cardboard cutout.  Offer some untouched wedges for brave tasters.

Is This Lemonade?
Have each child juice one lemon half.  Collect the juice in a pitcher. Let each child dip a clean plastic spoon into the juice for a tiny taste. Ask them if this is really lemonade.  Then, add sugar, water and ice to the pitcher and try taste testing again.

Counting/sorting Strawberries
For the magnetic or flannel boards, make a variety of strawberry shapes, some small, middle sized and big. Leave the basket of strawberry shapes out for the children to explore, count and sort on their own.
