The Fruits & Veggies Themed Activities were perfect for this time of year, Spring Time! The children loved learning about plant parts we eat, making a food journal, observing plants growing, pretending to visit a fruits & veggies shop and drawing and painting vegetables. The Colorful Food Journal Printable Book is great for developing vocabulary, fine-motor and color word-recognition skills.

Activity 4: Food Journal
What you need:
- Food Journal printed out and assembled
- Coloring pencils/ markers
How to complete the activity:
During lunch or snack time, ask the children to look at their food and to notice all the different colors. Meat can be brown or white, vegetables can be green or orange or yellow or purple etc. Let the children talk about all the different colored foods they eat every day. Ask them if they notice any patterns? A lot of vegetables are green etc. When they have all eaten up and after quiet time, the children can ‘draw’ what they had for lunch, count all the different colors and record the numbers.
