Fruit Play

The Pre-School children have had lots of fun today using their senses to explore a tray of different fruits. The children showed interest in the different textures and smells as well as the different colours and shapes. We did lots of squishing and squeezing and the children observed the different effects.

These are just some of the things the children said throughout their play,
“it’s very squishy.”
“it made my hands all red with the juice.” 
“this fruit has got all little seeds in”
“I can smell strawberry, it’s delicious”
“the berries came from the big trees”
