Tiny Garden Cracker

Mi Jardín Pequeño

Diseñe su propio mini huerto comestible con galletas saladas, hummus y verduras y hierbas frescas. Edad 6+ ~ 30 min

Esta es nuestra receta favorita del jardín porque es divertida, inspira la creatividad, ¡y anima a lxs niñxs a probar nuevas cosas! Necesitarás galletas de arroz (o tostadas, u otras galletas grandes y planas), frijoles refritos, (o hummus, pasta de frijol o queso crema ligero), y una variedad de verduras y hierbas cortadas en pedacitos. Si es posible, comienza caminando por un jardín y pide a lxs niñxs que describan lo que ven. Si no hay un jardín accesible, pide que cierren los ojos y describan un jardín que hayan visto antes. Plantas, rocas, senderos, árboles, tierra… ¡Todas estas cosas son parte de un jardín y vamos a usar nuestra imaginación para crear nuestros propios jardines miniatura y después comérnoslos! Asegúrense de lavarse bien las manos y después muestra a lxs niñxs una galleta o tostada untada con frijoles, hummus o queso crema sobre ella y demuestra cómo pegarle pedacitos de verduras y hierbas para crear un jardincito. Ten algunas extras por si a alguien se le cae su galleta o quiere crear más de una. Haz preguntas a lxs niñxs conforme crean sus jardines. Anímalxs a describir su “jardín” y lo que está creciendo en él. Una vez que ya compartieron, ¡disfruten juntxs de su saludable bocadillo del jardín!

También hemos usado esta actividad para hablar sobre poder comernos los colores del arcoíris, alentando así a lxs niñxs a realizar creaciones coloridas. También hemos aprovechado esta actividad para aprender sobre las seis partes de las plantas.

🚨 Happening Today 🚨

We are grateful for the opportunity to invite you to a FREE Life Lab
screening of this important and beautiful film.

Today, October 30th at 7pm PST

Gather (Gather ), is an intimate portrait of the growing movement amongst Native Americans to reclaim their spiritual, political and cultural identities through food sovereignty and land rights, while battling the trauma of centuries of genocide. With regenerative agriculture and permaculture gaining national attention, it is more important than ever to recognize the tremendous innovations and contributions of Indigenous communities and practices. We are grateful Gather has become a key part of these discussions.

To view the screening this Friday, October 30th at 7pm, please make sure that you have RSVP’d via the Storyspaces screening platform link below.

Thank you for such a wonderful field trip experience! Your leaders did such a great job at keeping our kids engaged.

Terry had another awesome two weeks at Life Lab. I think he learns more there than in any other part of his year. School is great, but he’s passionate (and often dogmatic) about what he learns there.
