Not your average Veggie!

Have you ever painted with asparagus?

Miss Molly had all eyes and ears with her Vegetables last week!  This was such a fun lesson plan and I wanted to share it.  Rudd came home talking about how peppers even smelled "hot".  I love it!

First, we talked about each vegetable: color, texture, smell, taste.

Giving these veggies eyes gave them a whole new persona with lots to discuss!

Then, we worked on our memory skills with a matching game...

We either have very lucky or very genius children : )

This made it easy to transition into some early reading skills.

and then we topped it off with paint, of course!

* Disclaimer : if your child starts painting with their vegetables at the dinner table, it is all my fault : )
