Fun with Food

Create a print matching game using food cartons from your kitchen. Cut out the front panel of the carton showing the words and one of the side panels that shows the same logo. Match up the cards and talk about the words and what type of food it is. Your toddler might surprise you by recognizing what foods the logos represent!



(Suit actions to words)
Mix a pancake, stir a pancake.
Pop it in a pan.
Fry a pancake, toss a pancake.
Catch it if you can!
