Farmer’s markets may seem new and trendy in the US, but really, selling fresh, seasonal local food in neighboring communities is a tradition as old as agriculture. As more Americans ditch the shrink wrap and shopping carts, we’re discovering that farm-fresh produce tastes better and comes in nifty varieties – and shopping at the farmer’s market is fun, too!
If your child agrees that the farmer’s market is more fun (if nothing else, we know kids love the samples), then he’ll love the Learning Resources Farmer’s Market Color Sorting Set! This delicious and nutritious assortment of play food is packed with vitamins, minerals, and play value: kids can sort the veggies and fruits by color, count them, pretend to sell them, pretend to cook them, pretend to make recipes, create color patterns, and more.
Along the way, as they play with their Farmer’s Market veggies, they’ll learn color recognition, sorting skills, and counting skills, and if you add more kids to the equation, social skills, too. And of course, the realistically designed, realistic-feeling, relationally-sized fruits and veggies in the Farmer’s Market Color Sorting Set make great props for some lessons on nutrition.
Use this Learning Resources set on its own, or use the cute baskets and vivid play food to enhance other toys: play kitchens! Grocery carts! Cash registers! A grocery stand! Or, just let the kids figure out their own creative enhancements, as they inevitably do. The Learning Resources Farmer’s Market Color Sorting Set is suggested for ages 3 and up; includes 25 foods, 5 baskets with sticker labels, and an activity guide.
