Getting Creative with Cooking Activities–Kitty Bagels

Standard

At my work, every Friday is “Friday Fun Day” for the Kindergartners; a day of cooking activities, outdoor play, treasure chest prizes, and indoor play. My co-workers and I do our best to come up with cooking ideas that parallel the lesson of the week. And as someone who loves sugar and sweets, I found it super simple to come up with the cutest ideas using these such things.

But one day my boss tells me that using skittles, marshmallows, frosting, and chocolate chips every week for cooking activities does not follow the organizations core value of healthy habits and lifestyles; naturally, my response was “WHAAAAAAAAAAA…. ?”

Anyways, in addressing this issue, I have come up with some of the cutest healthy cooking activities, one of which is this:

Healthy Cat

Healthy Kitty

Ingredients and Materials:

1 half bagel

3 sliced olives

3 half cubes of cheese (triangles)

6 shredded carrots pieces

cream cheese

plastic knife

Instructions:

1)   Spread cream cheese on your bagel

2)   Place 2 cheese triangles, tips ip, towards the top of your bagel to create the ears

3)   Place 1 cheese triangle, tip down, in the center of the bagel to create the nose

4)   Place 2 sliced olives above the cheese nose to create the eyes

5)   Cut 1 sliced olive in half and put them facing outwards directly under the nose to create the mouth

6)   Place 3 shredded carrots strands on each side of the nose to create the whiskers

Thanks for reading!
