Vegetable Animals
Watch your child light up as they help turn ordinary vegetables into unique animal creations.

Let your child's imagination go wild while providing exposure to healthy foods. These vegetable animals require help from an adult, but your child will enjoy directing the project and providing input into the animals created.

Time: 30 minutes
Age: Any age
Level: Medium

Materials
Various vegetables
Dried beans
Toothpicks
Markers
Paring knife

Method
Go to your local grocery store and select any vegetables that interest your child.
Go home and let your imagination run wild! Examine the vegetables and decide which have the potential to be carved into animal shapes. Make sure to allow your child to have input, and as much as possible, allow him or her to direct the creation.
Use the paring knife to carefully carve each vegetable into whatever animal imagined.
If necessary, use a toothpick to attach two or more vegetables together.
Use a marker to draw on any facial features necessary. For the eyes, you can also carve small holes and rest dried beans in the sockets.

This activity is the perfect way to collaboratively work with your child.
