I've been working on my food prep activities for this year and have come up with what I think is a fairly decent list. Please feel free to add to it if you have any other food preps that you like to do with your children that I haven't listed. banana slicing clementine peeling orange juicing cereal making making toast apple slicing "painted" toast (milk and food coloring) instant oatmeal with hot water in an air pot apples and peanut butter apple "wraps" with apples, peanut butter in a tortilla pistachios peanut shelling nut cracking making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches warm vanilla milk in an air pot nutmeg grating pickle slicing making hot tea with air pot/tea bags carrot peeling and slicing cinnamon grinding cheese slicing cucumber sandwiches flower crackers (peanut butter, almond slices, raisins) cats eyes crackers (banana, peanut butter, raisin) snack kabobs on a toothpick (meat, cheese, fruit) I know there's more out there. What else do you do/make with your children? I'm limited in what I can do since we're not allowed to have heating elements in our classroom. I got a special dispensation for the toaster.
