We were so happy to have Cole's mom Rebecca come in today and make Halloween juice with us for Cole's shared snack. Everyone participated in the activity by putting either an apple, orange or carrot into the juicer. We called it Creepy Carrot Juice! This was such a fun and easy way for the Pre-K children to eat more fruits and veggies today. It was SO yummy! Thanks Rebecca!
