Evergreen cooking, making fire, roasting marshmallow in EYC
In EYC, children learn about different vegetables, herbs and nuts which are available during the autumn months, as well as how to best preserve and cook them, using imagination and magical thinking. The project also includes dining and learning good hygienic practices during cooking.
This week, the focus was explaining the role of fire safety, talking about what we need to make fire, why children never should touch matches and lighters and remembering some rules about fire prevention. Finally, roasting the Mmmm-marshmallows (we were practicing a new “m” sound in front of the fire) was the best thing ever!
