Yummy and healthy! Who can resist! And even the picky eaters find some fruits they like and can tolerate a few bites. It is also a great opportunity to discuss textures, flavors, shapes.

I have tried this in class and at home- all the kids were mesmerised and excited. They can help arrange the candies, which is a great concentration training.

It is also nice to make small flours of four or five candies of the same colour and pour some water around.

Remember these games and use them as brain breakers. I always choose to go outside if I can- more movement, more space to learn and have fun.

Get inspired here! My kids love any hand-print activities and even though it is messy and a little stressful for me, I sometimes take the courage and just go for it. We have made decorations, cards, animals, shapes. Sometimes they do hand and foot prints on newspapers and wastepaper. (I always use a big floor mat to protect the floors or we work on the balcony or in the park).
