I've been doing Friendship Salad for a couple of years now and I just love it. My kiddos love it and it also provides a good snack for the 1st day of school. I start by reading That's What a Friend Is by Pat Hallinan. Then I begin assembling the salad. This year I'm looking for ways to expand the activity. I want a little something to send home with students to spark a conversation at home. Also, I'd like to do an art/writing activity to display for Back to School Night. Does anyone have any ideas?
