I talked to the children about how farmers plant the seeds and the vegetables grow. When vegetables are picked, they have to be cleaned well before we can eat them since they are dirty from the soil and may have pesticides on them.
The kids loved this activity! Don’t they always love the chores we don’t like to do? I also added a few fruits, too, since they also have to be scrubbed before eating.
You can use plastic vegetables and fruits like I did, or even try some real ones. If your plastic vegetables have holes in them where water could get inside, use a glue gun to stop up the hole with hot glue.
