Are you looking for help in teaching your preschooler/kindergartner about real food and making healthy lifestyle choices? How about a simple hands-on curriculum that would instruct your youngest learners on what are good natural food items as well as practical knowledge for every day illness preventions? I am excited to introduce you today to Vintage Remedies newest resource titled, Vintage Remedies for Kids by Jessie Hawkins.
Vintage Remedies for Kids is a simple hands-on workbook that teaches health and natural living to boys and girls ages 2-6. It covers a wide variety of topics related to natural living including wellness, nutrition, immunity, natural body care, and the conservative use of valuable natural resources – in terms they will understand and remember!
Each of the 18 lessons in this 202-page spiral bond book has a parent introduction section, an age appropriate read aloud lesson for your little ones, simple discussion questions to build and expand upon the content of the lesson, and 2-3 hands-on projects to visually reinforce the lesson. Enjoy preparing a selection of healthy snacks with your child including green smoothies, popsicles, and granola bars. Other fun activities include making a color wheel of food chart to help reinforce a variety of colors in their diet, compiling a real food collage with pictures, growing a garden, and so much more. The workbook is flexible and can be used for playgroups, as a fun family project, or a health course for your homeschooling routine.
Keep in mind this is a basic spiral bond book and does not contain any pictures or art work. While the lessons can be fully completed without these features, I do hope that will add some more colorful imagery or coloring pages to help keep the attention of these little ones in future additions.
Overall, I was greatly impressed by the content of this resource and believe it to be an extremely helpful tool for introducing the concepts of real food and nutrition to our little ones and will surely be enjoyed by all ages! I anticipate using it while homeschooling my two little ones this fall!
Vintage Remedies offers a wealth of online educational courses in herbalism to help equip your family in natural health care.
