Fun with Flyers: A preschool lesson on fruits & veggies

I always get excited on flyer day…on the hunt for super good deals that they often bring! This week as I was looking through the weekly bundle with my C when she began to ask about certain items in the grocery flyer, and an idea struck!

{Decal from uppercase living…currently this one is unavailable but loads of other super cute ones…I’ve run out of space on my walls so am extending beyond the four walls!}

With back to school season in full swing, my brain has been filling up {thank you Pinterest} with different ideas to promote Cs learning at home when she is not at preschool {to think next year I will be talking about actual back to SCHOOL!? yikes!}.

Rounding up 3 simple on hand supplies, an activity to teach my kiddo about differentiating between fruits and veggies, was in the works…

And with such little preparation! All I did was cut the fruit and veggie pics from the various flyers.

You can easily build this into a preschool homeschooling unit on nutrition, combine with the storytelling {perhaps one of our favs, the Very Hungry Caterpillar}, change it up to introduce other food groups, use this grocery bag/cut out concept to facilitate your toddlers contribution to the grocery list, or simply use as a fun stand alone activity!

And in true preschooler fashion, my C decided anymore than 10 minutes spent on one activity is unheard of! So now we have a ready to go activity for the next time!
