The Kindergarten children have been engaging in imaginative play by running a café and restaurants and cooking up a storm both indoors and out for their peers and educators. They’ve created sandwiches, cupcakes, a variety of cakes, pizza, pasta and coffee. To extend on this interest, we decided to create a shopping list as a group of what to include in a healthy delicious sandwich. We then ventured off to Woolies to purchase the ingredients, prepare them, make the sandwiches and eat them for afternoon tea as a group. The whole experience took a full day to complete and we’re happy to say our tummies were satisfied. The children included carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, cheese and avocado to their sandwiches.
