On Wednesday 4th October 2017, some of the Snugglepots children went on their first excursion in our new quad prams.
Our educators, Kylie, Jacki, Jodie and Stacie went with the children to Woolworths to buy the ingredients to make muffins in the afternoon with the rest of their friends. We went with a shopping list which consisted of strawberries, blueberries, baking powder, vanilla essence and some birthday candles.
This was our maiden voyage in the quad prams. The children loved waving to the public as we walked through the shops. A couple of the children pointed out the big trucks that drove past us. The children looked very relaxed sitting in the prams.
Once we returned from our excursion to the centre, the children had lunch with their friends and some had a sleep. Once they were all awake from their afternoon naps, we made our muffins. With the help of our awesome cook Liam, we made strawberry and blueberry muffins. The children sat in the high chairs and around the table and all had a turn of mixing the batter and then mixing the strawberries and blueberries. Some of the children then helped put the patty pans into the tins. Once they were cooked, we got to enjoy the muffins with afternoon tea.
We all enjoyed getting out on our first excursion. Stay tuned for more excursions to come in the Snugglepots room.
