Melissa & Doug Cutting Food

Item #45755

$19.99

This item is available in-store only.


$19.99

This set contains eight pieces of wooden food, a cutting board and a wooden knife. Cutting the food makes a satisfying "crunch"--and a playful introduction to concepts of "whole," "part," and fractions.
  • Item Dimensions: 11.6x10.85x2.65"
  • Age: 3 Years +
  • Activity #1: Ask the child to identify each food and categorize it as a fruit, vegetable or grain.
  • Activity #2: Place the food items in a row. Ask the child to count the number of food items. Repeat the activity until the child is able to count them independently.
  • Activity #3: Ask the child to place the apple on the cutting board and cut it apart with the wooden knife. Explain that the apple has been cut into two equally sized pieces, or halves. Ask the child to find another piece of food that could be cut in half (the pepper).
  • Activity #4: Ask the child to put together the sandwich-bread slices on the cutting board and to use the wooden knife to cut them into individual slices. Explain that the bread was cut into three equal slices, or thirds.
  • Activity #5: Ask the child to place the watermelon slice on the cutting board and to cut it apart with the wooden knife. Explain that the watermelon slice has been cut into four pieces, or fourths.
  • Activity # 6: Place four or more foods in front of the child. Let him/her study them before asking the child to close his/her eyes while you remove one piece. Ask the child to identify which piece was removed.
