Stone Fruit Salad take II

Yep! It's that time of year again. Here are some photos from today's toddler room celebration. We began the Stone Fruit Salad lesson with a craft of gluing fruit shapes onto a bowl. These are now on display as you walk into the classroom. A note to parents went home saying what fruit each child had offered to bring in. I contributed some fruit too, and yogurt also and of course the STONE.
This year I made the stone from felt and passed it around the circle before we began the preparations.

The special stone fruit salad feast was delicious! The children prepared the fruit for the salad: they sliced bananas and cut apples, pulled and washed grapes, drained and rinsed the canned peaches, they set the tables and put out our special snack mats, one for each guest.
Although many a blueberry was eaten before it ever made it's way to the fruit bowl,it was a salad made by them, children 18 months to 3 years and a good time was had by all. Never underestimate a toddler! I am forever thankful that they remind me of this fact each and every day.
