Tic Tac Toe Crackers


Tina Tortilla says: Keep offering new foods. It may take 8-12 times of seeing, playing with, or smelling a new food before your child will try it.

Sing Together!

Sing songs about food as you are washing your hands before you make the Tic Tac Toe Crackers. Find good food songs here (link to 3.4 Activity- Songs About Food). It will make your child even more excited to try new foods!
