Cutting Food

I just have to mention this amazing site that my mom found that is filled with any type of coloring sheet you could imagine. I love it because most of the pictures are very realistic. Check it out here if you haven't heard of it before.

L got the Melissa and Doug cutting food for Christmas and has always enjoyed playing with it but last week I actually gave her a lesson on how to cut the food properly. I was surprised that she picked it up so well and follows all of the steps (including cutting it on the chopping board).

After a week of practice with the play food I decided to try her with a banana. I put some small guide cuts in to show her where to put the knife.

She got the idea and was soooo proud of herself for cutting her own banana. I think we'll practice with a few more bananas and then I'll move on to some other soft fruit like strawberries.
