For this week’s Muffin Tin Monday I’m sharing a snack and activity we did with our muffin tin – Taste Testing!  I created this activity to teach my preschooler about her sense of taste.  I wrote down five aspects of taste and read them to her, then she tasted each item in the muffin tin and tried to guess which taste it was.

Our Taste Testing Muffin Tin Meal included:

  • Indian fried potato (spicy)
  • Cocoa powder (bitter)
  • Mango (sweet)
  • Cracker (salty)
  • Lemon (sour)

She did pretty good with the matching and ate everything right up – except the cocoa powder.  Dalton climbed up to join our activity and I had to get more salty crackers.
