Fruit and Vegetables Theme: Tuesday 17th March

1. Try a different type of fruit and vegetable or maybe re-try one that you were not so keen on when you were younger. We were planning to taste small pieces of: Carrots, Swede, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Kiwi, Mango, Papaya, Passion Fruit, Pineapple and Figs. See the attached photo of what we had already bought.

2. Make a fruit salad and eat it. Beavers were to be given half an apple, half a pear, half a Clementine and a few grapes. After washing their hands, they were going to use a table knife to cut the fruit into small chunks and mix with orange juice. Treat yourself and add a scoop of ice cream (and maybe some sprinkles).

3. Favourite Fruits. Each Beaver to name their three favourite fruits in order of 1st, 2nd, 3rd. They were to draw their favourite fruit on a sticker to attach to a graph. We now plan to make a digital graph to share with everyone so please send us your scorings.

Remember – when you have had a go at this activity, get your parents* to post to the Facebook Group – with photos if you can.
