Over 30 Hand-Painted wooden Pieces Including knife and Cutting Board!

The Cutting Food Set helps teach fine motor skills and hand-eye coordinator; encourages imaginative and independent play as well as introducing fractions.

Extension Activities:

  • Ask the child to identify each food and categorize it as a fruit, vegetable or grain.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • Ask the child to place the sandwich bread slices together 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.  (Do  not use the loaf of bread for this activity.)
  • 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.
  • 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.
