Preschoolers hear and play with sounds in words through singing and by playing rhyming games. Use this recipe to introduce words that have the same beginning sounds.

What You Need:


  • 1 1/2 medium bananas

  • 2/3 cup oats, dry

  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, plain

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chia seeds

  • 2/3 cup milk

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 2 tablespoons pecans, chopped

What To Do:


  1. Have your child mash 1 banana with a fork in a large bowl. Say, “We are making overnight oats. That starts with the same sound /o/.”

  2. Add the oats, yogurt, chia seeds, milk, and cinnamon.

  3. Have your child stir everything together and chant “Overnight Oats O-O-O!”

  4. Pour mixture into two half-pint (1-cup) canning jars. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

  5. Cut half of a banana into slices and top each jar with some of the banana slices and 1 tablespoon of chopped pecans. Enjoy!
