Going nuts with nuts – getting them to play and eat nuts.

20131117-005319.jpg

The produce department setup a nut display and the first thing I thought, how much fun would it be to smash nuts with a hammer. So Lil’ M1 & 2 picked out one of each kind, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds and Brazil nuts.

It’s the first thing they wanted to do even before I could put away all the groceries. I asked them to feel the texture of each one, shake it and then time to smash it. After cracking each one, Lil’ M1 tasted it. (Lil’ M2 has an allergy to nuts but he still smashed them). And his favorite, the almond.

I really enjoyed this activity. My favorite part was his eagerness to taste the nuts. What a great way for Lil’ M1 to try nuts instead of just opening a bag.
