There were two dress-up themes for this Fun Friday!  Middletown Schools started a tradition of wearing ORANGE to stand up against bullying.  Here are the Kids’ Korner Kids rocking their oranges!

But, we also had our “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” Theme!  And there was just a little bit of  BoSox and Yankee rivalry going on (with some White Sox mediation).  haha!

Our CATCH Nutrition Activity was making edible baseballs using Nilla Wafers, Cream Cheese, and Pull and Peel Twizzlers.  We talked about foods that are “WHOA”–“SLOW”–“GO,” discussing that candy is a “once in a while” food and cream cheese is a “slow” food, due to it’s fat content.  We discussed that whoa and slow foods are okay in moderation, so this treat was not as healthy or nutritious as our other CATCH Nutrition food projects, but tasty and okay for once in a while.
