Our family has a little tradition called “Taco Tuesday.” We love tacos! The only problem is that Maggie doesn’t really eat any part of the taco…except the shredded cheese. Oh, how I love these toddler taste buds (insert rolling of the eyes here).
So, I came up with a little taco craft that Maggie and I did together to try and help her learn that it’s okay to eat new things.
We used a paper plate for the taco shell. It was white, so I had Maggie do one of her favorite things…PAINT! I brought out the brown paint and she went to town painting her little taco…
Then I cut out “ground beef” from brown scrapbook paper, “tomatoes” from red scrapbook paper, and “lettuce” from green scrapbook paper. Then I used yellow ribbon to make shredded cheese.
I talked to Maggie about the ground beef, lettuce, tomatos, and cheese and how each thing is good for our bodies in different ways. And then she filled up her taco….
This was a fun, cute craft! Maggie had a blast filling her taco…hopefully with my reminders she will fill her real taco on the next “Taco Tuesday” night.
This is a great craft to go along with our Mom Explores Book Club book of the week, “Dragons Love Tacos” by Adam Rubin. It is such a cute book. Check it out here:
