We harvested vegetables from our garden last week. The kids washed, peeled, scraped and chopped their carrots, broccoli, celery and peas and we threw in some potatoes from the store.
Little hands were preparing real food they planted and tended themselves. Yes, it’s a bit messy and we have to be extra careful because we are using real tools, but the kids love being part of food prep routines and are way more diligent in following directions and being safe when they are doing an “adult” task.
So many students are surprised that they DO like soup when they grow and prepare it themselves. Bon appetit!
