Garden Soup

  • scoops
  • tongs
  • water pitchers
  • ladels
  • wooden spoons
  • tweezers
  • measuring cups
  • funnels
  • scissors
  • large pots and bowls

Set up bowls for each child along a table or bench, and fill each with water. Next give each child scissors, tweezers, and have them snip leaves, flower petals, and grass from around the yard and garden. They can then mix and stir their items in the bowl. Making Garden Soup is about more than just playing in water. There’s lots of learning going on here as well. Fine motor skills are strengthened as the children pluck and snip flowers and leaves from the garden. Decision-making skills are challenged as they choose their ingredients for their soup.
