At Kirkley Nursery, we love following the children's interests! So when the children decided to make smoothies. We sat and wrote a shopping list with a variety of fruits such as persimmon fruit, mangos, bananas and different berries. The children were very focused when helping to prepare the fruits. The children used child sized tools, like knives to cut the fruit into pieces for the smoothie. By doing this and by using our fingers to peel the bananas and select small berries, we are developing our fine motor skills.
After we blended it all together we enjoyed drinking it with our snack. Yummy!
