5 Minute Fun with Kids: Blindfold Taste Test

blindfold taste test for kids - Fabulistas

When my sisters and I were little we used to do blindfold taste tests where we’d dare each other to eat or drink whatever concoction we’d created, usually some disgusting mixture of ketchup, hot sauce, applesauce, and whatever was closest to rotting in the fridge. This activity is exactly like that. HAHA! Just kidding, you guys. We’ll leave the mild torture to siblings when the kids are a bit older.

Instead you’re going to put together a plate of different foods with different tastes and textures that you have lying around the house. I included chocolate chips because I am still vying for my “Mother of the Year” title and knew it would be a major hit.

I also included limes because I was pretty certain they’d get a huge reaction and there’d be all sorts of sputtering and dramatics, which is exactly what you’re looking for in a successful taste test.

The kid seriously gave me nothing. She was like, “Yep, Mom, that’s a lime. Not bad at all.” I, on the other hand, thought I was hysterical, because somebody needs to encourage me, right?
