A big Thank you to Moss Green Children’s Books for developing these cute colouring pages for children.
Organised by age with an increasing level of detail and information, the colouring sheets are drawings of fruit, vegetable plants and the vegetable patch. We particularly like the fact that the plant is shown as a whole, helping children understand where their food comes from. This is an essential step in educating children in healthy eating. The sheet shows how the vegetable and fruit are used in the kitchen.
Through play and colouring, children have the opportunity to learn about seasonal products. Why brussels sprout are a classic in a traditional Christmas dinner but never mentioned for summer barbecues. Why we have to wait for summer to feast on raspberries the garden… Older children will also learn about pests attacking the fruit and vegetables which can lead to interesting discussions about organic growing, pesticides…
