Fun cooking activity that teaches children how ingredients transform when you freeze them.
What You Need:
- 1 8-oz. container of your favorite flavor of yogurt
- Small paper cups
- Wooden chopstick
- Carrot sticks
- Plastic wrap
- Favorite fruits like fresh blueberries or bananas, sliced
What To Do:
- Have your child pour/scoop her favorite yogurt into paper cups. Fill the cups about ¾ full. Then, add fruits to the cups.
- Talk to your child about the texture of the yogurt.
- Stretch a small piece of plastic wrap across the top of each cup.
- Using a chopstick, poke a hole in the plastic wrap. Stand a carrot stick straight up in the center of the cup.
