Strawberry Days

One thing I love about this time of year is the abundance of strawberries!

A few weeks ago we went strawberry picking…

Twenty pounds and twenty dollars later, we did a bit of strawberry prepping!

(I love this picture of Annalee!  It shows her style so perfectly!)

Then we did some strawberry cooking with the rest.  We made strawberry jam, strawberry rhubarb jam, strawberry mix and match bread, strawberry smoothies….

The last of our backyard strawberries were gobbled up last weekend.  We’re on to raspberries for fresh munching now, but luckily we have a freezer full of strawberries to keep us happy for a while too.

In the meantime I found this wonderful strawberry lapbook to to finish out the fun.

Here’s a bunch of strawberry lesson plans, book recommendations, links and art ideas, too.

“Even the coeur flottant merveilleux aux fraises, presented with a great flourish, made little impression, for it was no more than what may happen to the simple, honest dish of strawberries and cream once it falls into the hands of a Frenchman.”

  1. Nice site Alicia – I have enjoyed looking around! I loved this post – it’s a great idea for a field trip. I didn’t know what mix and match bread was though and had to google it (I am from the UK!). Sounds yummy – am going to give that a try.
    best wishes, Julie.
