Teachers do a lot of different activities with the garden heroes, but something the dietitians do with the garden heroes is play music while the kids pass them around in a circle. After some time, we add an additional garden hero to be passed around, and eventually have multiple little guys going around in a circle – it’s great work on coordination for the preschoolers. When the music starts to pick up the children have to pass faster and faster.

There is also a song we have that has the preschoolers work on balance – so the children place a garden hero on their elbow and balance with it, or place it on their forehead and balance with it – whatever the song mentions they move it to different body parts to balance it.
