I have to tell you, K is not that easy to make a meal for. And K is the letter we are up to in our My Father's World curriculum. We will be learning about Kangaroos for the next couple of weeks. I decided to focus on the kangaroo's pouch because our Words to Remember are, "I am safe in God." The kangaroo's pouch is a safe place for the joey (baby kangaroo).
I used half of a whole wheat pita pocket for the pouch and stuck a pickle slice cut in half inside for the joey's ears. Then I used some cheese to form the letter "k." I stuck some sauteed kale at the side of the pouch to represent the vegetation the kangaroo would eat. Then we had kielbasa with some ketchup to dunk them in. Our fruit is kiwi, of course. And we had Hershey's Kisses to represent God's love because he loves us so much he keeps us safe.
I figured the children could put the kale, kielbasa and cheese in the pita to make it into a sandwich, but they didn't really care for that idea. Unfortunately they didn't like the taste of the kale or the pita. I thought it was pretty tasty, though I wasn't supposed to have the wheat. Oh well, I have been bad for a few week's now.
Of course they gravitated to the Kisses. I told them they could have one, then they needed to eat the rest of the lunch.
Not sure what is with the head tilt here:
