Felt Board:  Five Red Strawberries. I used a bear puppet to eat the strawberries.

Five red strawberries, sweet to the core.
Bear came and ate one (nom nom) and then there were four.

Four red strawberries, growing near a tree.
Bear ate another one (nom nom) and then there were three.

Three red strawberries, for you and you and you.
Bear came and ate another (nom nom) and then there were two.

Two red strawberries, sitting in the sun.
Bear ate the biggest one (nom nom) and then there was one.

One red strawberry, where five had been before.
Bear ate the last of them (nom nom) and then there were no more.

No more strawberries, whatever will bear do?
He’ll have to go berry picking with all of you!

Rhyme modified from Mel’s Desk.

Two ripe berries sitting in a bowl. (Hold up two fingers)
The blackberry fell out and started to roll. (Hold up finger, and roll hands)

One ripe berry sitting in a bowl. (Hold up five fingers)

Craft: Strawberry and Blueberry Dough. This dough with added strawberry or blue gelatin is a good activity for toddlers gaining strength in their fingers. It also has scents that smell so good! The dough was placed in a bag so they could take it home.

Based on recipe by Natural Beach Living.
