We have been talking about seeds and planting all week and have planted some seeds of our own. Today, in keeping with this theme, we read the book Growing Vegetable Soup by Lois Ehlert. In the book a child plants vegetable seeds with her dad and, when the seeds have grown into plants, harvests the vegetables and makes soup with them. Our seeds are obviously nowhere near ready to harvest, but we still wanted to make vegetable soup so I brought in some veggies from home. I brought tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots, but any vegetables would work.
We carefully cut the vegetables into small pieces.
I opened a can of chicken broth and poured it into a bowl. Then the children put their chopped veggies into the broth.
We put the soup into the microwave for five minutes. While it cooked we sang songs to pass the time.
When it was finally done we let it cool a little and then ate it up.
Everyone loved it and wanted seconds!
