PBS KIDS VIP (Very Involved Parent)Since today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day, I figured it was the perfect time to share with all of you a little project that we recently completed here at Rock Father HQ. With the new math-centric series PEG + CAT getting ready to make it’s debut on PBS KIDS on October 7, the folks at PBS KIDS and Whole Foods Market have teamed-up to offer families some fun recipes that are both educational and healthy. But they’re not just recipes – but arts and crafts projects as well – and we took on The Pirates’ “Great Banana” Fruit Salad Recipe and Craft Activity. Not only did we make some tasty fruit salad from scratch, but we also created our own little “treasure chests” to keep it in as well. Let’s take a look… 

PBS KIDS' PEG + CAT Pirate Fruit Salad

Using Empty Yogurt Cups (from the Stonyfield Yo Baby that Finn eats), White Paper, Crayons, Scissors, and Tape, Addie and I created our treasure chests. And the salad itself? Using the instructions provided (download a PDF from PBS KIDS here), the salad actually helped teach math in a fun and hands-on manner.
