Afternoon at the fire pit.

Tuesday, October 1st, 2019

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 ” Millie 
”Yes and this is very sore” Rhodes 
 ” We not allow to go over the yellow line ” Amelia
” Only  an  adult can set the fire up ” Aleksander 

” Water puts fire out ” Millie

And then  children’s curiosity ……………
Why is the smoke white”     Rhodes

‘Why dose the fire dance ” ” Looks like  orange”  Millie
” Why dose smoke smell like that ”   Conner
” Can we cook in the fire ”  Rhodes
‘ Yeah Marshmallows” Amelia
”Burned toast” Rhodes
”Chocolate ” Mirac
