Just to keep you in the loop, June is National Dairy Month. Hello, milk, cheese, and yogurt. In honor of such a fabulous month, my sis-in-law let us in on a fabulous secret Dairy Day in the Boro.
what could be more fabulous than cow puppets?
FREE CHOCOLATE MILK!! yes, please!
and there were free ice cream sandwiches, but they ran out while we were in the mooovie,
no worries, we ended up with ice cream in our bellies somehow
The chiclets got to play fun cow games, like throw the cowpie on the bullseye, who doesn’t love that game?
They also got to work on the farm, picking apples from the tree, and veggies from the garden (a skill they have mastered at home), eggs from the chicken coop, and grain from the fields. Then they had to sort the foods into food groups, go sell their goods at the Farmer’s Market, and spend their money at the store. they bought coloring books! How cute is that?!
Our very adorable and excited friends came too and we had a blast meeting the cows…
okay, real ones too! (horrible picture, I couldn’t seem to catch the kids and the cows in a good shot)
Wow, that is intense. I like that idea of having them gather the veggies, milk, etc. because then they get to see first hand where it actually comes from. Yay for Dairy, my favorite food group besides the SUGAR food group!!
