Free printable rainbow taste test sheets
We’re all encouraged to eat a rainbow of fruits and vegetables each day and this rainbow-themed taste test activity invites children to try out a new food and record their findings.
How to use this taste test sheet
:: print the sheet from our Creative Kids Learning Library (see below)
:: chat with your children about which foods you could try to eat a rainbow of colours
:: head out to the market, store or hunt round the kitchen to find colourful food
:: taste each food and talk about it. Use your printable taste test sheet to record what it looks like, what it tastes like, and whether you like it. What descriptive vocabulary can you use to describe each food? You can write or draw, and perhaps use emojis or ‘marks out of ten’ to score your answers
:: you can extend this activity by interviewing each other to find out which food was most popular. You might collate your results and represent them in a graph or piechart
:: you could also find out where each food comes from and locate the countries on a map. How did they get to your store?
