Working with food provides many benefits to your child’s development.
By using different items, your little one learns to identify ingredients and what distinguishes them from other items.
Pre-math skills, such as sorting and measurement, are also visited.
This activity involved using graham cracks, marshmellows, and Nila wafers to create a steam engine.
Each item was of a different shape, and it was up to your little one to figure out how they would best fit together!
By using materials such as food in a variety of shapes, teachers expose children to various shapes and help them analyze two- and three-dimensional shapes in various sizes and orientations.
