I like to welcome the Olympic Bento Bloggers and Olympic Hoppers to Read.Explore.Learn.! This meme was designed to be a place for you to share the learning opportunities, crafts, field trips, and other activities you have done this week that tie-in to children’s books. I look forward to seeing ways you have learned with and explored books.
This week I am going to share a wonderful children’s book of poems on the Olympics along with an Olympic related bento snack. I decided to join an Olympic Hop hosted by a group of Bento bloggers and tie the book I am sharing with a snack I made for JDaniel.
The book we looked at this week is called Elympics. It was wonderful book of poems that talks about various summer and winter events in the Olympics. The poems were really fun to read and are filled with rhymes. JDaniel was able to learn about several of the events that he may see during the Olympics through the poesm and really fun illustrations in this book.
This elephant is made of pita bread and he is carrying slice of an ice cream cone with cheese flavored rice cakes as a torch. In the upper left hand corner of the Bento box are fresh spinach leaves with a carrot and fruit chew medal. The bottom left hand corner of the box contains hummus with the Olympic rings made of black olives.
I went with a greek food theme for part of the box to represent the fact that the Olympic started in Greece. Thankfully JDaniel loved everything in this snack Bento.
