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. Help your child match the small cards to the larger cards. Talk about the words and any letters your child might be familiar with (such as the first letter of his or her name).



(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!
