Recipes and Snacks
Make Chocolate Chip Cookies with the kids - a triple C word.
Make Corn on the Cob
Have the children list other foods that are yellow or that begin with C.
Have several carrots on hand - clean and cook some of the carrots. Invite them to taste raw and cooked carrots, and ask how they are alike and different. Take a survey - graph the results.
Crazy Caterpillar Critters
Provide a variety of vegetables that begin with the letter C, such as celery, carrots, cucumbers, cabbage and cauliflower. Cut these into small pieces and rounds. Have them assemble a caterpillar in the shape of a C by sticking the vegetables together with peanut butter or cream cheese. Give each child a piece of cabbage to be the "grass" under the crazy critter.
Chicken Pox Pancakes:
Strawberries, Pancake mix, Bananas, Powdered sugar
Chop the berries into small chunks, allowing one or two per pancake face. Set aside.
Prepare the pancake mix according to package directions. When the pancakes are done, place each serving in a stack on a separate plate. For every two stacks of pancakes, you need to peel one banana. Carefully slice off the two ends and put one on top of each stack for a nose. Then cut two thin slices from each end for eyes. Then cut banana in half for a long curved mouth.
Arrange the strawberry chunks chicken pox all around each face. Drop a pinch of powdered sugar on each pox for a tasty bit of puss. Serves as many little polka dotted people as your heart desires.
