Sad to say I just discovered frozen grapes. I am obsessed and are a popular snacks with the kids I provide therapy for. I call them mini sorbet balls, because when you bite into them they have such a refreshing, sweet taste.
(makes two caterpillars)
1 wooden skewer
2 golden raisins
Parent: Break a wooden skewer into two, clean of the ends so no small pieces of wood are sticking out.
Kiddo: Place 5-6 grapes on each skewer. Once done, place the skewers in a small bag and place into the freezer.
Kiddo: Next day, take out the grapes from the freezer.
Parent: Cut two raisins in half.
Kiddo: Push the open end of the raisin into the “head of the caterpillar.” It should have no issues sticking, since the grapes are so cold and the gooey part of the raisin just sticks on. Add the other “eye”. Do the same for the other caterpillar.
Cold and Hot… time to talk about what things we eat, touch or places we go are cold or hot. As questions… here are some examples…
- where do you put food to stay cold?
- where do you put food to make it hot?
- what foods do we eat cold?
- what foods do we eat hot?
