Brain Building Activity

It’s topping time! Have your child help you put the fresh fruit in each glass. As you go, ask your child to talk about them. What are their colors? What do they taste like? Which fruits are sweeter? From color to texture to taste and more, each fruit is loaded with differences for you and your child to discover and discuss! (Ages 3–5 years old)
