First we made the pudding together. I allowed the boys to pour the milk discussing measurements of 1 cup. They patiently waited and checked the refrigerator at least 10 times during the 5-10 minutes that the pudding had to get cold.
We made shapes, wrote letters, and wrote numbers in the pudding. We also discussed how the pudding feels, using lots of language. I think their favorite part was licking their fingers!
Of course in true "JP style", (my 4 year old) he wasn't so sure at first, but then he really enjoyed himself.

|I placed the pudding and cool whip on cookie sheets to contain the fun!|
|Now look at that smile! Priceless!!|
|Oh such yummy goodness.|
|Mixing all the goodness!|
This activity only cost me a box of pudding out of my pantry(which had been there awhile) and left over cool whip from Thanksgiving. So pretty much a free, fun activity!
