We recognize that there is great concern regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) in our communities. After following basic CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) steps to prevention, what can we do to support our students and keep them safe? Our spring Seasonal Scoop provides you with CDC precautionary measures, food safety tips, an outdoor garden game, an indoor game, and a garden-inspired recipe. We hope these tips and activities will help keep your kids as safe, active, and healthy as possible. If your school, center, or community space has been temporarily closed, please consider sending this to the parents of your students to use as they see fit.
Center for Disease
Control Precautionary Measures

We encourage you to follow these precautionary measures at all times as outlined by the CDC. Click the picture below for more essential food safety and classroom tips that are especially important to follow during flu season.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cough or sneeze into an elbow or use a tissue and immediately place it in the trash (and then wash hands).
  • Stay home if you are sick.
Knife Safety Tips and Tricks

Rainbow Garden Cracker 
Build an Edible Garden!
Guide kids to design their own Garden on a Cracker by chopping colorful vegetables utilizing different plant parts to make their "garden" and using hummus as the "soil." This lesson teaches kids that healthy snacks can be fun and full of color. Here are some ingredients we like to use:
  • Rice cakes (garden bed)
  • Hummus (soil)
  • Sesame seeds (seed)
  • Carrots (root)
  • Celery (stem)
  • Purple Cauliflower (flower)
  • Cherry tomatoes (fruit)
Pro tip: Encourage kids to try their first bite together using the phrase,"Crunch on three! One, two, three...Crunch!"
