Bubbly Juice Floats

Introduce new foods and words with this delicious (and nutritious) tasting activity for preschoolers!

Explore food and language for a delicious learning experience!

Anytime a child is given the opportunity to cook it is a great teaching tool because they are provided the opportunity to practice life skills! Children will sample the different tastes that have been placed in front of them and enhance their language as they describe what they are using and how it tastes.  

When children are involved in the kitchen they feel proud and capable of doing things that most adults do on a day-to-day basis. They become more aware of how things are made and learn the joy of trying new things.
