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:)

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
