Cooking up a treat…

We wonder if your meals over the weekend will be quite as delicious as those created recently in our mud kitchen?!One little one mixed, poured, scooped and scraped as he created his very own banquet outside… DINGing it in the microwave before finally serving up for his friends!! Mmmmmm delicious 🥣 Sooooooo many skills were being learnt, and different concepts were being explored, here; from investigating capacity, exploring numbers and counting as spoonfuls were added, senses were stimulated as herbs were selected from the sensory garden to enhance the mixture, fine motor skills were perfected as mud was transported from container to container using a variety of utensils, imaginations were developed as the banquet was planned, prepared and eaten, natural sequencing took place as ingredients were found, mixed and then ‘cooked’, communication skills were key as plans were shared with friends and the Jolly grown-ups who had lots of questions to ask too as they excitedly tried to find out exactly what was on the menu!! These were but a few of the things naturally occurring as the mud kitchen was played with…. (We love the focus and concentration that you can clearly see upon this little face as they created, created, created).Cooking in the kitchen will never be viewed in quite the same way again!!What will be on the menu in your house?
