More healthy foods in preschool: veggie pizza

One way we have been exploring healthy foods in preschool is by making different kinds of pizza. Today we made veggie pizzas.

For our veggie pizzas, the children dipped red, green, and yellow peppers into red, green, and yellow paint…

Then they pressed the painted peppers on a construction paper triangle (pizza) shapes…

Perhaps for this activity, I would suggest a little bigger pizza shape but as I observed the children in action I noticed that it did bring an unexpected challenge for eye-hand coordination as the children aimed to fit those peppers in that small space:)
