From the pages of Mudluscious (page 86, to be exact) comes this noisy food game.
It looks like a great fun activity, yes?
However I haven’t tried it yet, and I am therefore still anticipating how things might go.
I am also picturing all the bottles of pop I know and can’t figure out how I would “bite” into one to get a squirt.
Children love to make noises with food. In this game, they will have to think what makes noise. There aren’t “right” or “wrong” answers — just lots of possibilities.
Children are seated in a circle. The leader takes a bite of an imaginary food and says, “Crunch,” then passes the “food” to the child on her right. This child repeats the action and the sound. The last child in the circle names a crunch food. Potato chips? Celery? A frozen icicle? (You may need to prompt shy children at first.)
Next, the leader bites into a “squirt” and passes it on. Is it a grapefruit? A dill pickle? A bottle of pop?
Finally, try a “squish.” What sounds “squish”? A ripe banana? Mashed potatoes? Mud pie?
Make up your own sounds and let the children try their own!
