Winter POP Club – Week 15
February 16 – Week 15: This week our POP Kids will be participating in an activity that will teach them about farm animals. They will look through facts about random farm animals and choose one that they think they know. Then they’ll go to the poster board and match the fact to the correct picture of the farm animal. Afterwards, they will fill out a worksheet that will teach them more about the different farm animals.
2-Bite Club: Kale
Discover the Power of Produce and join the POP Club this Sunday!
Last Sunday, POP kids got to plant their own microgreen seeds! Microgreens are an easy and delicious plant to grow! They are little sprouts that can sometimes even be more nutritious than eating an actual whole plant! POP kids got to plant these seeds into little egg cartons and then take them home to watch them grow! If you haven’t yet registered, come down to the POP tent this Sunday and join the club! We’ll be doing fun activities for the kids every week 🙂
So, how does the POP Club work?
Well, the POP Club is a farmers market-based kids program. Each week children (ages 5-12 years old) will participate in fun and educational activities that will teach them about fruits and vegetables, local food systems and healthy food preparation. After that, they will be trying the 2-Bite of the week which will be a fruit or vegetable that’s in season and can be found at the market. As they try the 2-Bite we will share with them interesting facts about what they are eating. Once they finish the activity and try the 2-Bite, children receive a $3 market token that can be used towards any fruit or vegetable of their choice. They can either use their token right then or save them for bigger purchases. This teaches kids how to make healthier food choices and how to manage their money.
There is no cost to participate and the program runs every Sunday rain or shine!
Hope to see you this Sunday!
