This afternoon we got the fire pit out and together begun to make the fire.
The children helped shred the wood , put twigs and sticks into the fire pit and made a spark with the flint.
Throughout the fire pit activity ,children developed their awareness of fire safety rules.
Please see the children comments :
”If you touch the fire you will get burn ”
”Yes and this is very sore”
” We not allow to go over the yellow line ”
” Only an adult can set the fire up ”
” Water puts fire out ”
And then children’s curiosity ……………
”Why is the smoke white”
‘Why dose the fire dance ” ” Looks like orange”
” Why dose smoke smell like that ”
” Can we cook in the fire ”
‘‘ Yeah Marshmallows”
