Sidewalk Stencils: Fruits & Vegetables
Fruit and vegetable patterns are a great way to teach about nutrition and create a fun outdoor eating or play area. Use the fruits and vegetables stencils to create uniquely shaped hopscotch, pathways, or targets for vertical jump. Fruits and vegetables can also be placed randomly and used to facilitate free active play.
Play I Spy
On person calls out the food group/food/color they spy. Everyone else finds a food that fits that food group as fast as they can.
One person calls out hints about a food and everyone goes to that food.
Fruit & Veggie Bounce
If the fruits and veggies are painted in a line, have two people stand on either side of the first stencil. One person will bounce a ball to the other, hitting the fruit of vegetable with the ball first. The second person then begins walking toward the next and bounces the ball on the next stencil to the first person. They continue down the line like this until the end and then come back to the beginning. If the ball doesn’t hit the stencil or go to their partner, then they go back to the beginning and start again.s
