This is a great guessing game for kids of all ages. Cutting, touching, tasting and guessing make it a fun activity. It also has the added bonus of encouraging your children to explore new foods in a healthy way. This would also be good to try at a birthday party.
Time: 30 minutes
Age: Any Age
Blindfold or woolly hat
Selection of different fruit, vegetables and salad with different tastes and textures. It's worth adding a lemon or lime too.
Lay out a selection of fruit, salad and raw vegetables. With younger children you can ask them to describe the colours and shapes.
Have a go at touching the different fruit and vegetables to see what they feel like.
Cut the fruit, salad and vegetables into pieces. Adults will need to help younger children on some pieces but they can also get involved under supervision with a blunt toddler knife on soft fruits like bananas and strawberries.
Banana is an easy soft fruit to cut with a safe blunt toddler knife
Now ask your child to close their eyes, blindfold them or put a woolly hat over their head and eyes.
Pass different pieces of fruit to your child and ask them to guess what it is. They can describe what it feels like and tastes like in their mouth.
