FFF: ABC Snack

on November 30, 2012

Hello Parents,

We have a great snack time activity for your kids today. As you know we are always encouraging literacy and today’s snack helps with just that. Over at Creative Kids Snacks they were reading How Rocket Learned to Read, and well, with a book like that the best activity to follow is getting your kids reading or at least identifying letters. Exactly that is what they did, but turned it into a fun educational snack. Read on below for details on how Creative Kids Snacks created the perfect ABC Snack that will make the kids sing the ABCs all the way till night time, as posted on the site.

Ingredients

  • Banana
  • Peanut Butter
  • Plastic bag (i.e. sandwich bag)
  • Celery, Apple or Graham crakers

Instructions

Slice a banana into 21 sections, and then find something else, like celery or perhaps apples or graham crackers, to use for your vowels.  Next, find a plastic bag, snip off a tiny piece of the corner, and fill with several tablespoons of peanut butter.

Before piping the letters onto each space, work the peanut butter around in the bag using your fingers until it softens a bit.  It will come out much easier that way.

Before eating, here are a few things you can do with your child:

a.  Ask kids to point to the first letter in his name.
b.  Ask kids to spell her name by pointing to each letter.
c.  Ask kids which letter makes the sound __(fill in the blank)___.
d.  Point out the vowels and explain that there is a vowel in every English word.  (“Y” is also used as a vowel in certain cases)
e.  Use your imagination.

Kids will love this tasty alphabet snack!

Don’t forget to check out other lunch entries on the Creative Kids Snacks blog; not only are they super cute, but they’re also always inspired by an educational activity.

Fun Learning!
