Dinosaur Muffins

video
This morning Kaylee asked if we could make Dinosaur muffins. We discussed what might be in the recipe. Milk, flour, chocolate, sprinkles, a little bit of butter, sugar and dinosaur eggs.
We talked about where we would we get dinosaur eggs from. Not the lake, not the garden, not the museum and not the warehouse. We rung the supermarket and we were very lucky that the supermarket had dinosaur eggs in stock! Jo and several children got very busy making the dinosaur muffins. They were just delicious!

Dinosaurs

video
The children have had a growing interest in Dinosaurs over the past fortnight. This has been sparked by several children's visits to the Dinosaur exhibit at the Hamilton museum over the term break. At kindergarten we have been hunting for bones, hunting for dinosaur eggs, excuvating fossils, painting and drawing dinosaurs and using them in our dramatic play. We have also just had a request to make dinosaur muffins! We will let you know how they turn out!

Toasting Marshmallows

Today was one of our children's last days at kindergarten, he made a request to toast marshmallows so this afternoon we set up a fire pit in the sandpit to cook them. Its loads of fun plus a great hands on experience when it comes to learning about fire safety.
I think we were all marshmallowed out by the end of the day!
