Shelling Peas

Shelling Peas

Shelling peas is a great thing to do with young children. 

There are valuable lessons about where food comes from, it’s great for developing fine motor skills and also it’s a great activity to do while you chat.

You may find a reluctant talker opens up a little when doing an easy, repetitive activity like this.

There are maths lessons too – who has the most peas in their pod? Who will find the biggest pea? How many peas in that pod?

Do encourage your child to eat a raw pea or two – they make a great nutritious snack.

And of course you will have some lovely fresh peas ready to cook for tea.
