Today's group lesson is brought to you by the back of a box of cereal

Yeah you heard that correctly. I have always encouraged my girls to try to read the backs of cereal boxes even at a young age. I happened to find an activity we could do as a group on the back of a box this morning. I wanted to take a morning and talk about nutrition and how we take care of our bodies. This was a great jumping off point.

The activity was to make homemade playdoh and to make healthy foods to fill up the fridge made from the cereal box. The girls knowing that some fun things where coming up didn't mind so much having a good talk about nutrition and taking care of our bodies.






They really had a hard time with making items small enough for this little fridge. It was still a lot of fun. I may never have to cook breakfast again they where satisfied to know that our cereal selections are quite healthy and contain many whole grains.

  5. It was the best homemade playdoh too. I have made several in the past and this was perfect! I hope y'all can read it in the first pic.
