Have a go at making fruit and vegetable figures

We had a fabulous play with the veggies today as we were preparing for our Sunday roast. The children spent an age helping us peel, pot and prepare the veggies but the real fun came when we decided to make little vegetable people out of them. Sprouts, squash, carrots, potatoes and parsnips combined to make some excellent little characters, our favourite being a potato fairy with carrot and parsnip peelings for hair, a sprout for a head and a butternut stem top hat and carrot stick legs and arms! Fun, fun fun! And you’ll never guess what , my daughter actually ate a sprout this evening! I’m made up. Her father wont touch them!!

Here’s a great veggie song we were introduced to recently !!!

Cauliflowers Fluffy and cabbages green
Strawberries are sweeter than any I’ve seen
Beetroots purple and onions white
All grow steadily day and night

The apples are ripe and the plums are red
The broadbeans are sleeping in their blankety bed

Blackberries are juicy and rhubards sour
Marrows fattening hour by hour
Gooseberries hairy and lettuces fat
Radishes round and runner beans flat

The apples are ripe and the plums are red
The broadbeans are sleeping in their blankety bed

Orangey carrots and turnips cream
Reddening tomatoes that used to be green
Brown potatoes in little heaps
Down in the darkness where the celery sleeps

The apples are ripe and the plums are red
The broadbeans are sleeping in their blankety bed, Yea!
