no ratings yet

What You Need:

  • 2 bunches fresh spinach
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1-teaspoon sugar
  • Dash of salt and pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon poppy seeds
  • Colander
  • Paper towel
  • Pairing knife
  • Mixing bowl
  • Spatula

What You Do:

  1. Start by inviting your child to rinse the spinach in the colander and then dry using a paper towel. She can tear the spinach into smaller pieces and place them in the mixing bowl.
  2. Now your child can wash and dry the strawberries and slice using a pairing knife. Using a knife is a wonderful kitchen skill that encourages your child’s fine-motor skills and confidence! Once she’s sliced all the strawberries, she can add them to the spinach.
  3. It’s time to measure! Offer your child a set of measuring spoons to measure and add the vinegar, oil, salt, pepper, sugar, and poppy seeds. She can give everything a good stir using a spatula.
  4. Now she can serve up her salad for the family to enjoy alongside grilled chicken or pork chops!
