Match the Shapes

             Last week we made trail mix using different shaped cereal.
The idea came from Food Flair, a resource created by nutritionists and contains information about nutrition, healthy eating and food-related topics, along with recipes and fun activities to do with children, and ideas and information sheets to share with families.

I picked the Trail Mix recipe and created a matching game to go with it.
We measured and poured each of the cereal; cheerios, chex and puffed rice
talking about each shape as we added them to the bowl.
     We added raisins and dried cranberries then stirred it altogether.
At the snack table the children matched their cereal to the same picture.
