has been a favorite book of ours for a while.
If you haven't read it to your kiddo yet, make sure you do!
Here's a fun and very simple activity we did to go with this board book.
We used strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries.
Last of the fresh berries for the season. A farewell bash.
Next, we read the book and used our berries as interactive parts to the story.
One berry, two berry, pick me a blueberry.
She picked a blueberry and fed it to the bear.
Three berry, four berry,hayberry
It was hard not to sample the berries as we read along.
Trainberry, trackberry, clickety-clackberry!
I'm okay with getting a lil' berry stain on our book.
It's ours and we'll remember how the stain got there. :)
Buried in berries!
She enjoyed all the berries 'as is' in natural form as we read...EXCEPT for the raspberry, too sour for her liking (same here...*pucker face*).
Next, we conducted a taste test with different dips.
Cream cheese, vanilla yogurt, honey and chocolate whipped cream.
Turns out that ALL the berries were best in chocolate whipped cream.
There's a resource book called 'Story Stretchers' that we like very much. While I didn't get this activity from that book, it is a great resource for adding relevant activities to your favorite books/stories. They have a version for infants, toddlers, pre-k and up.
