Food Modelling Game

This food modelling game aims to:

  • Reduce fear of new foods by building familiarity - seeing, touching, and smelling foods
  • Use playdough or saltdough modelling as a way to encourage children to observe, touch and explore fruits and vegetables without any fear of being made to eat them
  • Build manual skills and get children to discuss food in a non dinner table environment
  • Build vocabulary to describe textures and shapes

Resources needed:

  • Instructions
  • Saltdough or playdough
  • Paints and brushes (if using saltdough)
  • Modelling tools, such as scrapers, cutters, rollers and items to score lines and bodge holes in the dough
