Vegetable Garden – Children will make a vegetable picture garden.

Materials Needed: construction paper, glue, scissors, and a little imagination to  make a vegetable garden.

Teacher Preparation: Draw or trace vegetables on construction paper. Cut out vegetables. Make sure there are enough veggies for each child to have at least four different kinds of vegetables (Ex: a tomato, potato, carrot, celery, corn and or broccoli.)

Instructions: Give each child one sheet of blue construction for background.  Ask children to choose which vegetables they would like to “grow”.

Once everyone has a background page and at least 4 vegetables, ask children to paste their vegetables to their background pages. Now the garden is complete.
