Preschool Soup Theme

preschool soup theme

January is National Soup Month, so it is a great month to incorporate a preschool soup theme.

 

Here are some preschool soup activities to try:

 

  • Create a graph – What Soup Do You Like Best?  Write children’s names under the names of two soups.  Count how many children prefer each soup.  Talk about which soup has a bigger number or lesser number of likes.

 

  • Alphabet Soup Letter Hunt – Put a variety of letters in a pot.  Using a soup spoon or tongs, ask children to find certain letters.  For older children, have them find the first letter of a word (ie.  Find me the first letter of the word “milk”)

  • Water Play Soup – In a water table, add plastic vegetables, soup spoons, bowls, colanders, ladles and let children use their imagination.

  • Make vegetable prints on a black construction paper cauldron.  Provide pieces of vegetables and various colors of paints.  Allow children to dip the vegetables into the paint then make prints on the cauldron.

 

  • Make Vegetable Soup.  Assign each child to bring in a specific vegetable (carrots, onions, potatoes, celery, tomotaoes, etc.)  Depending on the age of the children, allow them to safetly chop and prepare the vegetables.  Or have each child hand you their vegetables one at a time and talk about each vegetable as you cut it in front the children.  Once vegetables are cut up, place a large pot with chicken broth in the middle of the table.  Allow each child to put their vegetables in and stir it up.  Add some spices, cook, and enjoy!

  • Vegetable Soup Song (Sung to the tune of “Farmer in the Dell”)

The soup is boiling up
The soup is boiling up
Stir slow-around we go
The soup is boiling up.

 

First we add the broth
First we add the broth
Stir slow-around we go
The soup is boiling up.

 

Now we add some carrots
Now we add some carrots
Stir slow-around we go
The soup is boiling up.

 

Continue with whichever vegetables you children want.
