5 Senses: Taste ( and Cute Tongue Craft)

All week the kids have been waiting impatiently for the taste activities!  LD remembered doing this three or four years ago and couldn’t wait!

We first talked about the tongue and where you sense different tastes.  We made a cute tongue model and labeled the different areas.

I’ll show you how we put it together with a quick picture collage:

Then I pulled out a tray with different items and the kids had to decide what it tasted like–bitter, sour, salty or sweet. We used salt, sugar, unsweetened chocolate, cinnamon, powdered sugar, baking powder, lemon juice and Italian salad dressing.

So there you have it! A quick 20-minute activity and the kids sure enjoyed it!
