This yummy snack allows your child to build his/her own pizza while incorporating counting, sequencing, and categorization skills.
What You Need:
- 1 can refrigerated crescent rolls
- Turkey pepperoni
- Frozen chopped broccoli
- 4 pieces string cheese, cut in half
- ¼ tsp garlic or onion powder
- Pizza sauce
What To Do:
- Preheat oven to 375°
- Together with your child, unroll crescent rolls and lay out the 8 triangles on a cookie sheet. Talk about the shapes of each of the crescent rolls.
- Have your child top each roll with a variety of toppings: pepperoni, a scoop of broccoli, and a string cheese half. Make this step a game by encouraging him to count each item, having him copy you, or asking him what comes next.
- Carefully, roll up the ingredients into the crescent.
- Sprinkle rolls with garlic or onion powder.
- Bake for 12 – 15 minutes or until golden. Make predictions about how the ingredients will change and how it will taste.
