Cooking: Succotash: It's as Much Fun to Say as It Is to Eat.
Invite children to assist in preparing this delicious vegetable dish. Use canned, frozen, or freshly prepared lima beans and corn. You can also add finely chopped carrots, red bell peppers, or tomatoes. Place all of the cut vegetables in a bowl and invite children to stir them together until they are all mixed. Place the vegetable mixture into a pot to cook. When finished, add a small amount of butter or margarine and a dash of salt. Serve for snack or lunch. Ask children to make up silly words that rhyme with succotash.
