We're having fun featuring a new letter each week in our house, and since this is Veggie Buds Club plenty of our activities feature healthy veggies! Below find 9 activities that teach your preschool-aged kids about the letter "B" (and that veggies are fun and tasty!).
1. Read Books!
Enjoy our recommended "B" books featuring veggies and fruit (and honey!):
2. Paint with Broccoli
Simply dip broccoli florets in washable paint and use them as "paintbrushes" and/or slice broccoli florets in half to make "tree stamps". So simple and so fun!
3. Letter "B" Tracing
Download this FREE letter "B" tracing sheet from Veggie Buds Club.
4. Bake Some Beet Brownies!
5. Letter "B" Coloring Pages
Download these FREE letter "B" coloring pages from Veggie Buds Club.
6. Bake Some Broccoli Nuggets
Enjoy this delicious kid-approved recipe that was included in Veggie Buds Club's "Kids Love Broccoli" box! You can find the recipe on on our blog here.
7. Make Beet Watercolor
8. Broccoli Activity Sheets
Have fun with these Broccoli activity sheets! Create the letter "B" by using dot stickers or dot paint with Activity Sheet #1. Fill in the letter "B" with broccoli florets with Activity Sheet #2 (bonus if you have a laminator!).
9. Play Bean Tic Tac Toe
Make a Tic Tac Toe board out of green beans and use two different types of dry beans as the X's and O's! You can also go a step further and create the letter "B" with dry beans and greens beans. Be sure to eat some green beans as a snack while you play!
We made this fun veggie-filled holiday card! We hope you enjoy this free printable and spread some veggie cheer!
Simply download the above PDF and print: to align properly print double-sided and "flip on long edge".
Veggie Buds Club's "veggie of the month" is sweet corn! This means that from now through the end of September we'll be featuring fun arts and crafts projects, kid-approved recipes, games, and more that all showcase sweet corn. We shipped our kits to kids across the world last week and we have been enjoying photos of our little customers on social media participating in their Veggie Buds Clubs activities!
If you'd like a deeper dive into what's included in this month's Veggie Buds Club kit, you can view a great unboxing video on You Tube from Real Vegan Mama here.
