Now, I know you have always wanted to know exactly what we eat at our house. Here is your chance. 🙂
This little project was something I saw on the blog Busy Kids = Happy Mom. I loved the idea. I have a little one learning to read. She also really loves food, so this was a perfect project for us.
It will take a little while to save up boxes for this project, unless you want to just raid your pantry and empty everything out of their containers… When we finished something that my daughter ate and would recognize, I cut off the cover of the box and saved it.
Once you have a good amount of food boxes saved, you can assemble them into a book. Just hole punch them on the side and tie with some yarn- or metal rings.
What I love about this little book is that it gets my daughter excited to practice reading. She calls out what the food is, then we go searching for that word on the page. Sometimes it isn’t even on the box- like Graham crackers just say Honey Grahams, so we talk about what words we did find on there. She is “reading” her book very well now.
