Conduct Random Taste Tests
Blindfold everybody and let them taste from different bowls filled with not-so-everyday food items like olives, cauliflower, beans, cereal, avocado, gummy bears. This is a hands-on activity. (In other words, no spoons allowed.) One point for every correct food item named. Two points for every incorrect but poetic guess, such as my toddler's response to cornflakes: "Tastes like a bowl of snowflakes." Three points for not spitting anything out.
