Today we read some crisp and crunchy books about vegetables (remember to make sure you get at least 5 each day 😉 )

Our first book was:

Rah, Rah, Radishes! A Vegetable Chant

Rah, Rah, Radishes!

Words and Pictures by April Pulley Sayre

We sang the Story Soup song (to the tune of Farmer in the Dell)

Story Soup! 

We’re making story soup

We’re making story soup

We stir it slow, around we go

We’re making story soup

 First we cook the broth,

First we cook the broth.
We stir it slow, around we go,
First we cook the broth.

Now we add some carrots,

Now we add some carrots.
We stir it slow, around we go,
Now we add some carrots. 

Continue with additional verses about other vegetables your children would like to add to the soup. Finish with the following verse. 

The soup is ready now,
The soup is ready now.
We stir it slow, around we go,
The soup is ready now.

Our next book was:

Baby Food

Baby Food

Words by Saxton Freymann; Pictures by Joost Effers

For our craft we made harvest vegetable baskets out of paper plates and construction paper. The original idea for this came from here.

Here are some photos:
