Fruity Tutty activity

Perlis, the smallest state in Malaysia, is well known for its mangoes. There are many species of mangoes, with the most famous one being Harumanis. They are usually in season in March/April. With this in mind, I conjured an activity that encourages children to experience three types of mangoes using all their senses. The mangoes which were on display, for a day, are:

Grandfather’s Mango

The children and teachers had a discussion about the health benefits of eating mango. The smell from the mangoes was too tempting so we had to help ourselves by sprucing up a delicious cup of mango lassi during the hot season.

Mango Lassi’s Recipe:

  • fresh mangoes cut in cubes
  • Nestle low fat yogurt drink
  • fresh milk
  • honey
