Why was this baking experience so significant to our learning and development?
Baking is a special experience to be involved in as it creates links between home and kindergarten for children. Being involved in a group activity like this encourages us to slow down and follow instructions, some time 2 or 3 at a time. It also encourages us to practise our hand eye co-ordiation as we use knives to cut up ingredients, measuring cups to measure quantities of ingredients and spoons to stir the mixture in a bowl. A fun experience enjoyed by all, expecially at tasting time!
