Supplies and Preparation
- Print “Yummy Water” cutouts on page 139 or cutout pictures of fruits and vegetables from magazines.
- Cups, pitchers.
- Fruits and vegetables to flavor water.
- Note cards.
- Paper to cover outside of pitcher if needed.
- Glue pictures of fruits and vegetables to notecards.
Put different types of water in pitchers—warm water, ice water, and flavored water (add lemon, cucumber, mint leaves, watermelon, strawberries, orange slices, or other fruit). Cover the pitchers so children cannot see the contents.
Pour samples into small cups and let children sample each of the types of water. Put pictures of what flavor is in the water on the table and have them match the picture to the water with that flavor.
Consider doing this activity in a small group before putting it into the center as a choice activity.
