Activity : Vegetables and fruits garden

If you actually have a real vegetable garden or access to one, it is even better. If you don’t you can make one with felt and play picking up the fruits and vegetables.

You can make some pretend money and play selling food to each other, it’s a good way to teach maths and have fun.

Play time in the garden (real or made out of felt)
