Salad Bites

Fourth Grade Seasons Activities: Salad Bites

What You Need:

  • 1 head romaine lettuce
  • Small grape tomatoes
  • Small balls of fresh mozzarella cheese
  • Cucumber
  • Olives, red peppers, or slices of salami
  • Toothpicks
  • Paring knife

What You Do:

  1. Start by gathering all the ingredients and inviting your child to give everything a good wash.
  2. Offer your child the pairing knife and invite him to cut the small balls of mozzarella cheese in half as well as separating leaves of the romaine and cutting into 2-inch piece pieces.
  3. Now your child can also slice the cucumber as well as any other vegetables he would like to include on their toothpick salad.
  4. Invite your child to start threading the salad onto the toothpicks, mixing and matching the ingredients or keeping them all the same. Not only is your child experimenting with flavour combinations, but honing his/her fine-motor skills!

Once enough toothpick salads have been made to share with friends and family, yoru child can arrange them nicely on a plate with dressing on the side for dipping.
