Here is a longer unit study.  For Dutch foods we chose to get some real Dutch chocolate sprinkles to eat with toast and butter or peanut butter, a warm meal of spinach and potatoes, a meal of french fries in Patatje Oorlog style and Oliebollen! There are separate activities for younger and older children so everyone can be involved.

Supplies to get: Dutch foods and ingredients for meals, paper plates(for craft and eating), toilet paper rolls, library books with European map, world map, on the Netherlands, on World War II (Anne Frank, etc.) for “free reading”, a few books are listed below to read also.
