This is the sign up sheet I created for the parents. I made sure I created a space for each parent to bring at least one item. However, some parents brought two or three items.
Chicken and Vegetable Stone Soup
Cooked chicken breast
1 can/bag of sweet corn
1 bag of Noodles
1 can of tomato sauce
Small bag of cut potatoes
1 Can or Bag of green beans
1 small bag of parmesan cheese
1 small stone
Here we are creating pots with black play doh.
We colored vegetables, then cut them out
to glue on black crete paper pots.
These cauldrons were left over from Halloween.
They were perfect for the housekeeping area, outside games,
and circle time activities.
My favorite was watching the kids stir in alphabet blocks
and play vegetables to create
We talked about the word "ingredient" and "directions".
We touched and/or smelled each of the ingredients for our soup.
We washed our stone and vegetables.
Added the ingredients to our soup.
Each child had the opportunity to add an ingredient and stir the pot.
Then we all enjoyed "Stone Soup".
I found this site to be helpful
and one of my friends found this site for me today. I bookmarked
it for next year!
All of these book were available at my public library. We didn't get a chance to read all of them, but we sure gave it a try.
My friend Laura said it best, we had a "souper" time with this theme!
