Blueberries are fun to pick as well as eat!
Why not plan an outing to Blueberry Junction? Have Mom or Dad call ahead if you plan to come in the morning. Remember to wear a hat and sunscreen.
Picking blueberries can be a lot of fun. How fast can you fill your pail? Who can find the biggest blueberry?
Bring your camera and see how many different bugs you can find. Take pictures of dragonflies if you can. They fly very fast! See if you can find a ladybug. They are friendly and helpful to farmers. oHow about a bee? What else can you see?
Count the birds you see. We have hawks, eagles, crows, sparrows and robins just to name a few.
And what about flowers? There are many different flowers that grow in and around the fields. They come in many different colours, sizes and shapes. Who can count the most different flowers?
Summer Recipes Kids Can Make:
CREAMY BLUEBERRY POPS
Into the blender or bullet put:
• half a cup of blueberries
• half a cup of apple juice
• half a cup of greek yogurt (I like honey or vanilla flavour)
Blend until smooth. Put the mix into ice pop moulds and freeze for about 4 hours.
If you like creamier fruit pops use more yogurt and less apple juice.
FAST BLUEBERRY MILK SHAKE
Into the blender put:
• one cup of frozen blueberries
• one cup of milk
Blend until smooth. Drink!
For a creamier milkshake substitute one half cup of greek yogurt for one half cup of the milk.
