Many kids know the phrase “Taste the Rainbow” from the skittles commercial, but on St. Patricks day, Kindergartners through 2nd graders at St. Joseph Community School were able to eat the rainbow by trying a variety of fruits and vegetables.
We talked about how eating a variety of fruits and vegetables from the rainbow is good for our bodies and fun to see all of the different colors.
The kids favorite colors of the rainbow were most definitely red (strawberries) and orange (carrots), but many of them enjoyed trying yellow peppers for the first time. We had a fun time trying new foods and savoring our favorites. We even had time to play some games of color tag, simon says. red light/green light, and duck duck goose afterwards!
