Toasting Marshmallows

Its that time of year again, the weather is cooling off but we still have some beautiful sunny days, great weather for toasting marshmallows! The children absolutely love this, and its a fantastic authentic learning experience. We even use twigs from the garden as our toasting sticks. Toasting marshmallows in the sandpit also provides a great opportunity to learn about fire safety and teach safe fire use. Our children show great maturity around the fire pit, they are very responsible and knowledgable about fire safety. This activity is well timed as the children currently have a strong interest in fire trucks and we have a trip to Chartwell Fire station planned for later in the month. - Abby.
