Our Foundation children are making fruit salad today! We are using this at home learning time to engage in some wonderful food prep activities. It is crucial for children to manipulate food using real child-size utensils, which are easy to hold and control. When children are learning about how their bodies and hands work, real tools give them precise feedback, whereas toys may not. Cooking activities are broken down into individual steps allowing the child to repeat, practise, and gain mastery over their hands and experience the pride of independence.
