Little STEAMers: Food


Introduction Tickle the Moon

Tickle the Moon
Tickle your toes.
Clap your hands
And tickle your nose.
Reach up high.
Reach down low.
Turn around,
And say hello!

Source: Storytime Katie has a closing version she found on pinterest. I wanted an opening song, so my coworker reworked it to make an opening song.

Action Song Spicy Salsa

We did not have time for this song, but I have made a mental note to do it with the kids another time.

Song Table Manners
(Tune: Frere Jacques)Chewing quietly, chewing quietly
Do not slurp, do not slurp,
We must say excuse me,
We must say excuse me
When we burp,
When we burp.Source:
Activity We made our own butter! I played a list of songs that involved shakes and wiggles (Shake it Off, Hot Potato, Milkshake). I would count to 10 and have the kids pass the jar to the next kid. It worked out great! We had butter by the third song.
Closing Song Tickle the Stars

Tickle the Stars
Tickle your toes
Turn around
And tickle your nose
Reach down low
Reach up high
Storytime’s over
So wave goodbye!



Craft  Taco Bar!



Touch Rainbow Jello Soup


This was the most popular station. It was also the messiest. Word of advice. Clean the big bin right away.

Sorting I printed off the different food groups and assigned each one to a bucket. The kids then sorted the food to the appropriate food bin.


  Imaginary Play We have a play kitchen and I opened it up for the kids to play with.
