Camp Wannalaffalotta: Food, Glorious Food
Posted By Jessica Fisher On August 18, 2010 @ 1:32 am In Camp Wannalaffalotta | 7 Comments
But, really, the activities laid out in Camp Wannalaffalotta can provide hours of family engagement all year long. Next rainy day, go browse the archives. Or if you’re building a preschool experience  at home, the Camp Wannalaffalotta series  can provide a wealth of topics to explore.
Food is such a big part of our everyday that there is no shortage of topics and resources you could explore with your children. I am barely scratching the surface today. Nutrition, food preparation, and gardening are all great topics to discuss. Communicating about how, why, and what we eat helps our kids learn good eating habits as well as understand some of the methods to our madness.
Picture Books and Easy Readers
The Magic School Bus Gets Eaten: A Book About Food Chains 
My Food Pyramid 
Good Enough to Eat: A Kid’s Guide to Food and Nutrition 
The Honey Makers 
The Milk Makers 
The Vegetables We Eat 
Obviously, you can’t talk about food without making some and eating some. Cooking with your kids can be a rewarding experience, especially if you tie it into the reading you’ve been doing. If you read a book about pancakes, then go make some pancakes together. It’s that easy.
If you’re not sure how to start cooking with kids, buy my ebook: Cooking with Children . It’s chock full of recipes and tips for cooking with kids.
Get a Movie On!
