There were delicious treats galore at Kiddi Caru’s Burgess Hill day nursery on Shrove Tuesday (February 28), as the children whisked up their own pancakes.
As well as making the pancake batter from scratch, the children got to see exactly how the batter transforms into pancakes thanks to the nursery’s special child friendly oven. The staff provided a selection of tasty toppings, and the children could either choose their favourites or get creative and combine different flavours to make their own unique recipe.
Gemma Burnett, Nursery Manager, said: “Cooking activities are wonderful learning opportunities for children – they include a bit of science, lots of creativity and also, in the case of Shrove Tuesday, some culture, as we also talked about why we celebrate the occasion. We’re so lucky that we have our child friendly oven because it means that all of the children get to see the cooking process first hand and can actually participate with help from the staff.”
