We have some lovely letters for letter and word exploration. As the girls were playing in their kitchen a while ago, I gathered them up. I also had a big black pot, perfect for soup.
Daisy began to put the letters into the pot. The magnetic teaching tiles stuck to the inside and outside of the enamel pot. Daisy immediately began making words. I supported her word making when asked.
She added her wooden letters and letter stones, enjoying the ‘plonk’ and ‘thud’ they made in the pot.
Next, it was off on an ingredient hunt…no she did not add ice-cream. However, she did add carrots and cucumber!
Finally, to mix it all up, Daisy borrowed a big wooden spoon.
Yes, you can see some odd Halloween decorations in the background. We did this a while ago and I forgot to post it. A witch’s hat was handy and the alphabet soup was suddenly a potion that needed chanting and singing to accompany it. The only thing that came to my mind was Shakespeare; “Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble.” Daisy came up with alternatives which included a mishmash of what she was hearing from books at home and daycare.
Alphabet soup served up for Rose, Daisy and I. Yum!
And Miss Mischief enjoyed helping with the cooking.
