Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, many businesses and schools have closed down to practice social distancing. Many parents are at home with their kiddos wondering, "What do we do now?" Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom has come up with some excellent daily activities you can do with your kids and family.
This week we are focusing on tasty recipes you can do with your children while at home. For lunch, gather the kiddos in the kitchen and serve up some Zucchini Boats, or a Broccoli Grilled Cheese Sandwich, and don't forget the desert... Apple Rings! Click here for all these delicious recipes:
Now is also the time to plant your garden at home. Ag in the Classroom offers a planning guide on their website that shows you what you will need to grow your own garden, including plants, tools, garden plans, and more. Early Spring is the time of rejuvenation. In early Spring, you can plant cool-season vegetables, e.g. peas, broccoli, lettuce, cauliflower, etc. from seed or transplants. You can enjoy beautiful bulb flowers and discuss their growth and development. Click here to learn more about planting your garden.
You can also have tasting lessons with your kids to increase the acceptance and enjoyment of new foods. Students can learn about locally grown foods in their communities, and give those a taste, and they can also find out where they can buy local fruits and vegetables in their home town.
