Food Poetry

Contributed by

1. Invite your kids to take a bite of food. They can even close their eyes and savor it.

2. Ask ‘what does the food taste like? What is its texture? Consider its color, smell, and the memories it brings up.’

3. Have your kids say or write down the first words they think of.

4. Voila! They just wrote a poem!


This activity comes from the blog Savoring a Meal with Poems by Lisa F. Price, MD, a child and adolescent psychiatrist.
