Some of the children were helping to make banana muffins this week. The children were learning to keep safe when using electrical equipment, as well as learning how to follow a recipe and bake in the oven. A parent was very intrigued by what her child was doing so she decided to stay to get involved with the whole process. Another child enjoyed making the muffins so much that he made them when he went home with his gran. Children went to the house area afterwards and re-created making the muffins in there. They demonstrated symbolic play and also demonstrated the skills they learned whilst making the muffins.
