We have had some interesting insights into eggs lately – Nana Moyne brought some double yolkers in to show us what they are like inside, and Bailey’s dad downloaded a clip he took on his phone of emu eggs hatching (very special!) Hamish is looking after some eggs in an incubator at home – and therre were the frogs eggs (but the tadpoles died, we don’t know why)
Anyway, lots of children like eating eggs so we decided to do some cooking with eggs for our last day. We made mini quiches with grated zucchini and carrot for extra vegie power.
What did the children learn?
that they could manage every step along the way, with some explanation and demonstration from the adults.
that even if they don’t like quiche they can enjoy the process of using their manual skills
that sharing food is a happy part of being in a group
that you have to be careful when grating…
that you can keep doing something even if it’s hard – and it gets easier.
that our own made food tastes great and that vegies make it more tasty.
