Playing with food is famously fun among kids but we tend to not encourage this when a family gather around dinner table for a meal. But why not to let your little helpers play with fresh colourful veggies while you are cooking? This activity is proved to be lots of fun by children and myself and it’s full of curious discoveries too: how do different vegetables smell? do they have seeds inside? why does the juice come out when we prick the skin of the vegetable? Your children will surely come up with much more questions. Have fun!

* Two tiny potatoes
* Ginger

Step 1:
Using scissors cut your skewers into small pieces.

Step 2:
Chop up ginger into 4 bits (it’s going to be your creature’s legs) and carrots into multiple bits (it’s going to be eyes, noses or perhaps a mouth). Now take your little vegetable parts and little potatoes and skewer them all one by one.

Then stick the “body-parts” onto the big veggies.
