(For kids aged 6 and up)

The idea behind this game is to get kids not to judge food by how it looks but how it tastes.


For each pair of children:

  • A blindfold
  • 2 slices of red bell pepper
  • 2 slices of yellow bell pepper
  • 2 red grapes
  • 2 green grapes
  • 2 slices of red apple
  • 2 slices of yellow apple


The kids work as a team: one kid is blindfolded while the other has a plate with each of the different coloured fruits and vegetables on it and a work sheet.

The non-blindfolded partner passes a sample of each fruit and vegetable to their blindfolded partner (one food at a time) and asks them to identify the colour of the food that they’re tasting. The non-blindfolded partner writes down each response to see how many are correct.

The goal of this exercise is to not judge a food by its colour.
