INVOLVING CHILDREN IN COMMUNITY PROJECTS-Making Food for Volunteers

Standard

MAKING FOOD FOR VOLUNTEERS

This September, our town experienced a flood threat. A few days before the flood happened, the town joined together to protect the town by relocating residents, putting up Hesco barriers and sandbagging. This month for our Community Project, the children formed an assembly line and made sandwiches to take to volunteers at the sandbagging sites.

Skills Worked on with this Project:
-Learned about helping others in need
-Talked about our community
-Discussed weather and natural disasters
-Learned about assembly lines
-Used teamwork to make the sandwiches
-Fine motor skills were used in making/packaging the sandwiches

INVOLVING CHILDREN IN COMMUNITY PROJECTS-Baby Treats for the Babies at Young Parents Network

Standard

BABY TREATS FOR THE BABIES AT YOUNG PARENTS NETWORK

For one of our community projects, I had the kids make homemade baby teething biscuits for the babies at one of the non-profit organizations I volunteer for (http://youngparentsnetwork.org/). We included recipe cards in the bags of treats so the moms could learn how to make treats for their babies too.

Here is the link for the recipe:

Skills we worked on during this project:
-Measuring
-Cooking
-Sensory (smells, feels, tastes)
-Science (solids vs liquids and how different things turn into another, cause & effect)
-Physical (stirring, using cookie cutters)
-Counting (counting the ingredients, counting the biscuits we made)
