Food Storage

Monday night for FHE we decided to teach a lesson on self reliance. As little kids do, they had an attention span of about 1 minute. We talked about food storage and why we have it, then we let them help put our almost 80lbs. of sugar in storage buckets. They had a lot of fun with the sugar. It was all we could do to keep them from putting their hands in and tasting it!

They were all sad when all the sugar bags were empty.

I had to add this picture so you wouldn't think that Lexi was standing on the counter all by herself!

Oh come on we all know you let your kids run across your counter and hang from the chandelier. : )
Great to have a hands on to help get the point across.

We try to do some sort of food storage or emergency preparedness fhe at least once a year. Usually when we rotate our 72 hr kits :)

That looks fun. We had the same fhe last week. We let the kids grind wheat with our hand grinder. That lasted about two seconds, but it got the point across.
