The children had been so excited about the BBQ, that we continued to explore fire in the expressive area. The children painted a fire on a tuff tray, and discussed how to keep ourselves safe around a fire. The children made their own fire extinguishers, filled them up water, then sprayed out the fire! One child said “we’ve got to stand back” and “we’re gonna use it to spray the fire out”. There was lots of lovely sharing between the children as they took turns with the extinguishers. The children agreed that its best to leave putting out real fires to the nursery staff and fire fighters.
