Five Senses Theme Week Snacks

It was Sassyfras's turn to bring snack for her class last week.  The theme in her class was "The five senses".  I thought it would be fun to bring snacks that would go along with the sense they were learning about each day.

Sight
For "sight day" they talked about colors and rainbows, so we made a rainbow fruit salad.  Sassyfras helped me wash and chop the fruit and then arrange it in a rainbow on a blue platter.  We also sent in vanilla yogurt for some clouds.

strawberries, cantaloupe, pineapple, green grapes, blueberries, and blackberries

Hearing
We sent crisp crunchy apple slices and Bunny Grahams for snack on hearing day.  We wrapped up a box of the Bunny Grahams to have the kids guess what their snack might be from the sound it made.

Smell
We had fun with smell day and made a big batch of chocolate chip cookies together (we may have kept a few, okay a bunch, for dessert at home too).  We also sliced up some oranges.  We covered the platters with foil and then punched some holes so the kids could guess what their snack was by smelling.

Touch
The day they discussed touch, we sent Pirate's Booty and mandarins.  I thought peeling the little oranges would provide a nice touch sensory.


Taste
Friday was a tasting day.  Their teacher brought in lemons for sour and unsweetened baking chocolate for bitter.  We brought popcorn for salty and fruit snacks for sweet.

Wow! What a brilliant snack time! I absolutely love each and every snack you packed. The kids must have had so much fun experiencing all of these foods with their five senses!
