Hello, Pre-Tot Families!
Today we decided to continue learning about food by doing some “baking” in one of our favorite places, the sandbox! Each child was given a bowl with some sand in it and Miss Ashley added water to the sand in each bowl. The children took sticks and shovels and used them to mix the sand and water together. They added more sand, asked for more water, and worked hard at mixing together the ingredients for their cakes. When their cakes were ready to bake they placed them in the oven, turned the oven on and set a timer. When they heard a “ding, ding, ding” they took their cakes out of the oven and let us have a taste. It was a lot of fun to watch their imaginations come alive as they showed us their cakes (or muffins) and had us try them. We could also tell that many of them have been watching their parents cook at home, because they knew just what to do to turn on an oven and set a timer.
Shortly after we finished our baking the toddler and primary classes came outside to show us the volcano that they made. We all watched intently as it erupted over and over again!
Have a great evening!
