Making a Salad (Cutting and Tearing Activity)
This is a hands-on activity that kids will love to play with! It’s great for teaching a variety of foods, and is a good exercise in fine motor control. You can cut out and tear the food, sort the different foods into categories, and make your own bowl of salad. You can create a normal salad and a silly salad!
- 1 page of a bowl and forks

How to Prepare and Use:
- Print and cut out the pages of the bowl, salad ingredients, and tearable ingredients.
