Sorting fruit and veggies
Let them distinguish and categorise shapes, sizes, colours and textures using fruit and veggies. Watch your child’s fascination as they sort them, or even create images out of them. Have fun with descriptions as they discover the bumps on a mielie, practice peeling a naartjie or even taste a lemon.
Playing with fruit and veggies in this way helps them understand categorisation which is good for their memory, language development and Happy Growth!
You could perk up their interest by slicing some of the fruit and veggies into different shapes, such as a long thin cucumber which becomes circles when sliced.
There are no rules: Put out a range of fruit and vegetables and explore the many ways you and your child can describe and sort them.
Remember everything starts in the tummy…when they feel right, they can enjoy growing up happy!
