Chip-Chop


Friday is our Soup Day at Little Acorn Playgarden. It is a very special day because each child brings in their very own vegetable to share and therefore our soup is different each week. Because I have three children at different age levels (Age 5, 3 1/2 and 1) – it works out just perfectly because everybody has a special job. Brianna is the oldest so she helps me peel the vegetables…

Chip-chop, chippity chop,
Cut off the bottoms and cut off the tops.
What’s left in the middle goes into the pot.
Chip-chop, chippity chop!

~Sweet verse shared with me by Sara Wilson of Love in the Suburbs as taught to her son in StarBright Garden Preschool in Fair Oaks by teacher Pati Callan. How wonderful how these verses get passed around and shared with so many children worldwide?

Lilah is the second oldest and she is learning how to cut the vegetables safely with Ms. Eileen…

And little Fiona is the youngest and she likes to help us place the vegetables in (and out) and in (and out) of the pot until we are ready to cook them…

Soups on!

  1. How very sweet! I absolutely love the cooking rhyme! Thank you for sharing! With different vegetables each week, do you have an adaptable soup recipe that you use? Thank you!
